  Share emblem does not show on XDG standard directories

Status in nautilus-share package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  If an XDG standard directory, e.g. ~/Documents, ~/Music, or ~/Pictures
  is shared, the sharing emblem appears just after sharing, but does not
  appear automatically when loading the view for the home directory upon
  restart of Nautilus. This is because, when Nautilus Share is told to
  share a directory, it immediately adds the emblem to the directory.

  However, upon a restart of Nautilus, the way Nautilus Share detects
  which directories to add emblems to is via the Nautilus Info Provider
  interface. However, Nautilus does not query plugins for information
  via this interface for XDG standard directories.

  As far as I can see, there is no way within the bounds of Nautilus'
  plugin API to work around this issue in Nautilus Share code. The fix
  has to be in Nautilus code.
