OK, the answer is as follows.
Somehow, the string "Sarah's Public Folder" wasn't associated with her real public folder. So, that's why a Drop Box didn't appear when you clicked on it as a shared volume.
As it turned out, Sarah managed to have another sharepoint, mysteriously called "Public-1", which, when one clicked on it, contained her Drop Box. Huh? So what one has to do is to rename that sharepoint, which somehow was the one that pointed to her real Public Folder as "Sarah's Public Folder".
As root, you go to
and open up "Public-1.plist" for editing.
Wherever you see "Public-1" as a string, replace it with "Sarah's Public Folder".
