A bit before upgrading from 10.04 to 11.10, my Ubuntu desktop stopped allowing me to access my Windows share directories. I figured I'd upgrade to 11.10 and the problem would get fixed but no.

Unable to mount location – Failed to retrieve share list from server
Where do I start troubleshooting this problem? I am getting desperate now 🙁
sudo mount -t cifs //SomeMachine/SomeShare some_directory
and I get
mount error(115): Operation now in progress
Strangely enough, I got a popup stating:
