Also, it is very non-obvious that it will create icon on desktop.
Personally, it took me quite a while (like, umm, upgrade to 2.6) before
I accidentally discovered, during desktop tidying, icon for connection
made long time ago (since it somehow landed 90% off-screen). "Connect to
Server", let alone "Browse Remote Files", doesn't suggest even slightly
that some icon will be made. Plus, why put it on _desktop_, and not in
Network? Seems like Network doesn't serve any real purpose, at least for
me all that ever shows there is (empty) Windows Network.
