Ubuntu Desktop Mount Icons

This is quite annoying. Unless the host portion of the UNC is different (eg, by removing the full domain path and only leaving the machine name in this case) only the first of these two /etc/fstab entries will display an icon on the Ubuntu desktop:

//computer.subdomain.sussex.ac.uk/path/to/resource/ONE /mount/point/ONE cifs auto,user,uid=user,gid=group,credentials=/path/to/credentials,dom=domain 0 0

//computer/path/to/resource/TWO /mount/point/TWO cifs auto,user,uid=user,gid=group,credentials=/path/to/credentials,dom=domain 0 0
