    3. I assume its mounting as a temporary share. Modify "fstab" to automatically mount this share and the icon should remain intact, that providing that GDM 2.8 reads FSTAB and associates icons to the Desktop.

    they are saved in
    Code:
    ~/.gtk-bookmarks
    I find the 'annoying keyring' very useful, especially if connecting to multiple windows shares and not joined to a domain,

    If you're using the Places menu to get to the share, you have the option of adding the connection as a bookmark, which will re-mount the share when you access the bookmark.
