Public bug reported:

This maybe a configuration mismatch between gvfs and dnsmasq.

I am running Xubuntu on Yakkety
I have a Synology DiskStation (a NAS), which provides a Samba share. I have a 
DD-WRT router (has dnsmasq be default). Both are on near default setting.

In Xenial, I was able to navigate to the DiskStation via Thunar ->
Browse Network -> DiskStation. In Yakkety, I am able to see the
DiskStation, however I got the following error when trying to access it:

Failed to open "DISKSTATION"
Failed to retrieve share list from server: Connection Refused.

After some digging, I found that `gvfs-tree network:///` showed the

|-- dnssd-domain-DISKSTATION._smb._tcp -> smb://DiskStation.local:445/
`-- smb-root -> smb:///

In Xenial, I am able to ping DiskStation.local, but in Yakkety, it does
not resolve to anything.

There is no problem with `gvfs-mount smb://DiskStation/` or typing
`smb://DiskStation/` into Thunar's address bar.

>From what I gathered Yakkety desktop comes with dnsmasq installed. This
may be a bug with dnsmasq configuration, or gvfs's interaction with it.
