To translate that question: "Is it possible to access the mount point reliably within all applications from a gvfs-mount of a samba share?"
I just want to know if it is still possible to use Gigolo to map other applications to a shared mount point in this version of the OS.

Can someone tell me the correct syntax to mount a windows share in FSTAB for 13.04?
A general template for a cifs mount looks something like this for a guest share:
sudo apt-get install cifs-utils
For something that requires credentials:
//192.168.0.100/share /media/XXX cifs guest,uid=1000,nounix,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
//192.168.0.100/share /media/XXX cifs username=user-name,password=secret,uid=1000,nounix,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
192.168.0.100 is the ip address of the server - can also use the hostname of the server or if mDNS compliant the hostname.local of the server
share is the name of the share on that server
/media/XXX is the mountpoint on the client
Once you enter that in fstab run the following command which will test for syntax errors and if there are none mount the remote share:
