Hello, I too was hit with this issue on updating to 4.3.8, updated to 4.3.9 and still the same issue follows. Although my shares I'm trying to access aren't on another computer, but an external USB HDD on my router.

My external drive is NTFS with no password/share enabled, but in my router I set users' access(username/password) to access this external HDD. It worked fine prior to the 4.3.8 update, now when I try to access via Thunar, the login floater just keeps popping up not allowing me to access HDD.

I've even tried to set my user account in my router(HDD access) to match my Ubuntu account credentials, still fails.

I was on Xubuntu 14.04 when this update occurred, several days later I installed Xubuntu 16.04 and issue followed.

Thanks
