Nautilus trying to stat its bookmarks at startup makes bad interaction with nfs

Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

I have a bookmark in nautilus to an NFS-mounted partition, if I log in in gnome, with autofs/NFS enabled, I cannot log in, nautilus blocks the entire login process by hanging on NFS because the server is unavailable. While it's true that the problem lies in the NFS architecture, I think that nautilus should not stat/test existence for its bookmarks - not sure how to handle the problem. In any case, I cannot login now even rebooting the system (of course I will disable NFS), a timeout to the existence test should be added. Attaching a backtrace in case it helps.
