Description Luis Henrique Mello 2013-10-21 19:53:53 UTC
User is unable to select more than 1 folder to share in System -> Sharing preferences.

Steps to reproduce:
Turn on 'Media Sharing' on 'Sharing' preferences. One can select only one folder to share - nothing happens upon adding a second folder.
