There are two aspects:
A) Nautilus will try to list get the number of items in the mount
point's root directory, even if you are not displaying it. This is a
Currently, the internal priority for this process is equal to the
priority of the I/O tasks for getting basic file metadata. Maybe the I/O
priorities could be optimized for optimal display speed on scenarios
where subfolders are used.
B) You are using FUSE, or kernel mounts. However, for optimal
integration you should use GVFS mounts. Unfortunately, permanent mounts
for remote shares are not yet available in GVFS (Christian Kellner is
working on it, though), so this is not an option yet - unless you add a
startup script that executes a set of gvfs-mount commands.
