  File-roller can't create new archives in mounted samba shares

Status in File Roller:
Status in “file-roller” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have a large directory, almost 50Gb and 45.000 files shared by samba on ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS server.
  When trying to add some files to an archive, file roller reports insufficient permissions.
  It can't add new files to an existing archive either, only the extraction of files is permitted.

  Steps to reproduce:
  - mount the shared directory;
  - select any file, or group of files;
  - right click on the selection and choose "Compress..."
  - click on "Create".

  What happens: File-roller reports insufficient privileges.
  What should happen: a new archive containing the selected files is created in the remote directory.
