Sharing the 'public' folder causes buggy behaviour

Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

On right clicking a directory to enable sharing, the automatic downloader is invoked to fetch and install samba/nfs. This installs without hitch but when completed the same prompt continues to appear until cancelled (which is bad!).

After this the file is still not shared, however reselecting the folder and attempting to share again causes a PolicyKit popup to appear to authenticate but this is not given focus and prevents tabbing/selecting the window to see the settings. Blindly typing in my password removed the prompt and allowed me to select to share the folder as originally desired.

Confusing behaviour!
