Regarding attaching files in Thunderbird...

This worked, but creating a bookmark didn't, unless I'm doing it wrong.

The bookmarks to two network shares appear when in Nautilus, but not
in Thunderbird.

When in the "Attach Files" screen from within Thunderbird, I can
browse to the share through the .gvfs directory, and click "Add" in
the lower-left, but it appears there briefly then disappears again.

What could be the cause of this?
