Another update -

After further discussions with the customer it turns out that he can  
create folders/files directly within the share.

On my setup I can't create folders or copy files directly to the  
share, I have to work on a folder inside the share. That behavior is  
probably related to how VMWare set the share up though.

So it appears that 'there is a folder' is just not seeing shares as  
folders when they should be. I think I'm going to file a bug report.
