When opening a tab which needs to mount a Samba share, Nautilus 2.30.1 displays a window:

Password required for share xxx on localhost

Password: [           ]

(*) Forget password immediately
( ) Remember password until you log out
( ) Remember forever

               [Cancel] [Connect]

How can one set the default to something other than "Forget password immediately"?


Changing the default to "Remember password until you log out" was filed as a GNOME bug. The fix went into the mainline in July 2010, and was part of GNOME 2.31.5, so if you update you should get this behavior automatically. As far as I can tell from this comment, it's still not user-configurable, but at least you'll have a more useful default
