smb mounts stop working after idle time

Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

I have a two Samba Servers, one on Suse 11 and one on FreeBSD and Ubuntu Desktop shows the same problems.

I have some Network Resources bookmarked. When I need to access a certain place, I simply use the bookmark, which works fine and a Shotcut is created on the desktop, which also works great. After idleing around, I like to access the network share again but the shortcut on the Desktop errors out, so does the bookmark - the errors are attached.

I have to unmount the resource and access it then via the bookmark (abviously as the desktop shortcut gets removed) and can happily access the network resource.

Desired effect: - I like to access my Samba Server independently of how much time passed meanwhile

This bug was fixed in the package samba - 2:4.1.13+dfsg-4ubuntu3

samba (2:4.1.13+dfsg-4ubuntu3) vivid; urgency=medium

  * debian/patches/git_timeout_client_error.patch:
    - don't let smb mounts timeout that leads to errors when trying to
      reuse a mount after idling for a while in e.g nautilus (lp: #310932)
