When you open smb share that needs auth, before connecting, movian spins throbber. Then it figures out that auth is needed. And shows auth window. Throbber spins in auth background which is kinda strange.

Its good to stop throbber just before auth win appears and fire it up again after window is closed.

That's very complicated to do as the code that starts / stops the throbber have no idea what's going on in the FS layer.
