Connect to smb server gives error message and creates 2 icons

Bug Description

When I go to Places, Connect to Server, and then connect to a Windows Share, I get an error message, but the share will open. it also creates two icons.

The process is :-
1. Click Places
2. Click Connect to Server...
2.5 Choose "Windows Share" service type
3. Enter Server IP address, share name and username (see "Screenshot-Connect to Server.png")
4. Click Connect
5. Enter password in new dialog box (see "Screenshot-Enter Password.png")
6. I then get an icon on the desktop for "temp on" as expected but also get the error message "Can't display location smb://" (see Cant display location.png")
7. Double click on the "temp on" icon.
8. A second identical icon is then created for "temp on" , but the share opens fine.

So, there are two problems.
I should not get the "Can't display location smb://", as clearly when you double click on the icon it does open.
I should not get two icons on the desktop for the same share.

Can you help with this bug?
