Sorry about that, I clearly missed quite a lot of your post.

I think a symlink is your only option, if you can't cope with autofs mounting
it when you don't want it (or failing to mount it).  Depending on your reasons
for not liking it trying to mount, you may find BROWSE_MODE with autofs
satisfies Nautilus when the mount is unavailable.
