That would be nice, but it would mean another process running inthe
background polling the mount point.

Right now I'd just be happy if nautilus didnt go nuts with autofs. When I
chdir into /cdrom (a symlink to /auto/cdrom), and the drive gets mounted,
nautilus pops open a new window. When the drive unmounts nautilus ejects
it. I'd rather it just ignore this stuff. It would be nice to be able to
toggle this stuff on or off. Or maybe I just need to extend my unmount
timeout a bit. Its set low now so that things unmount when I stop reading
from them. I hate waiting for the cdrom to unmount so I can change it.

I dont have those. Are you refering to the tree view or elsewhere?
