nautilus gives no feedback when a UDF cannot be created from a symlink

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntuone-client

To reproduce,
1) Boot a recent natty live CD, sign into Ubuntu One
2) Create a symlink in your home folder
3) Right click on it in nautilus, and select Ubuntu One -> Synchronize This Folder
4) Nothing happens.

Presumably, to stay consistent with the way other potential errors are handled in the nautilus integration, it should grey out that option. However, I found this approach confusing. While the code contains explanations for each error case as tooltips, nautilus does not show these when you hover over a disabled menu item, which left me guessing.
