I'm a little late to this conversation, but here is my problem, my fix and my comment...
 I updated from Guitsy to 8.04 LTS on my desktop .... I could not hook up with my XP laptop in Gutsy (shared files could not be displayed on either computer) but when i upgraded, i could instantly see all shares from each computer on the other.... BUT, no apps needing Administrative password would work!!

etc/hosts: 127.0.0.1 localhost
                 127.0.1.1 frank-desktop.mshome

 After searching many web sites, i found some fixes... the on that worked was deleting the .mshome from thw second line using network tools/hosts...

now, all works well and i can still "network" fully!! WIERD!!!
