I'm on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

On boot, I get an error message:

Error: Failed to mount Windows share

mount is trying to mount a Windows XP machine that no longer exists. It happens automatically on reboot, there is nothing in fstab or smb.conf files. As the call is to a nonexistent media directory, I checked Totem player's playlist and nothing appears there.

I don't know how to figure out what is making this call.
