Bug Description

Description of the Problem
Using "Shared Folders" from the menu or launching mate-shares-admin directly from Terminal creates a share of an unexpected directory.

mate-system-tools 1.4.0-1+precise
binary: mate-shares-admin

Kernel: 3.5.0-17-generic i686 (32 bit)
Desktop: Mate
Distro: Linux Mint 14 Nadia

Steps to reproduce
** Launch in Terminal: mate-shares-admin or from Menu: Administration > Shared Folders
** Create a Samba share of any folder.
** It creates a samba share of the entire home directory of the sudo user that invoked mate-shares-admin.

mate-shares-admin through Caja

If however you use the right click context menu within Caja which appears to also invoke mate-shares-admin it does create the correct share of the folder.

Confirming this problem on Mint Linux 15 XFCE edition using binary mate-shares-admin.

This problem does indeed still persist in Mint15 Mate. Again it works as advertised through Caja but does not work in the stand alone application - mate-shares-admin.
