Shares not mounting!

Today, the Windows shares I had set up and actually used in my VMs refused to mount. I checked for some error output by mounting one of the shares from a console, copying the command line used in the script I run to mount them automatically when the Gnome session starts:

sudo mount -t vboxsf Music /mnt/Music

That produced a "Protocol error". So I researched that a bit and found the solution: in the command line the name of the shares must be spelled fully in lower case, thus:

sudo mount -t vboxsf music /mnt/Music

In the VM's shares setup window, the name of the share could be "Music" or even "mUsIc".
