Using 'hide unreadable' in smb.conf should have no bearing on the 
'share' tab, it hides files that users cannot read, it does not hide the 
share. If you want to hide the entire share from Windows clients, then 
place a '$' on the end of the share name in smb.conf e.g. [share] 
becomes [share$], this would hide it from everyone though.

Just what are you trying to add or remove from the 'share' tab ?
