I'm wondering if this should be reported as a bug. I really think it 
ought to leave the bookmarks alone until you actually try to access them.

I've been away for some days, so I haven't been able to test this until 

Anyhow, I like the idea, but it looks like it doesn't actually work. I 
guess Nautlius will also "follow" links when it does whatever it is it 
wants to do with the bookmarks, so that bookmarking a link has the same 
effect as bookmarking the target location :-(

Another observation is that bookmarks for remote locations in URL form 
(smb://..., ftp://... etc.) will not be accessed in the same manner, so 
I'm thinking that the problem would be solved if I could trick the 
system into thinking the autofs mount point is one of those. (It *is* a 
remote location, of course, but not in the same way...) I have no idea 
how this might be done, however.
