I think Nautilus is to blame who thinks it can not do it because of
UID and Unix permissions and therefore does not even try.

What is your UID at work? (guess: not 1000)
What is your UID on your home computer? (guess: 1000)

I would change the UID on the home computer to match the UID on the
work computer to work around the problem.

I think we had this discussion before, a long time ago. Did we get any
feedback from the Nautilus folks?
