Why not instead use only a script similar to S16-userCreateMediaLink
and open a window with the freshly mounted directory?  Ie something
like this:

  ssh -X -S ${LDM_SOCKET} ${LDM_SERVER} "konquror /media/$LDM_USERNAME"

It seem to me a safer way (do not touch the users home directory and
do not risk to remove the users ~/Media file by mistake), and also
more intuitive.
Happy hacking
