In the Nautilus "Connect to Server" dialog, are you entering a "User
Name"?

On my F9 laptop, I find if I do that the share won't mount.  I have to
just enter the server and share information only.  Then, when it tries
to use the share, it prompts me for the username and password and it
works correctly.

It didn't used to be this way, and I've gotten it to lead to two icons
for the same Samba share, but I haven't had the time to install/test it
on F10 and file the bugzilla if it still exists.
