Zeitgeist fails to index files on mounted network shares

Bug Description

As the subject states, Zeitgeist in Ubuntu 11.10 does not index documents which are accessed via a network share. This seems to be a regression from Ubuntu 11.04.

Tested with shares mounted via mount.cifs, sshfs, and gvfs/Nautilus.

I captured the zeitgeist-daemon output and attached it below. The path /home/myusername/Documents is a mounted CIFS share.

This prevents the Unity Files lens from showing any document history if your entire Documents folder is on a network share. (which is the case for the 70 or so users here on Ubuntu.)
