There are a couple of solutions.

A workaround for your is to create a Nautilus link (if you are using
Nautilus 1.0.4 or older) or a .desktop file (if you are using the upcoming
Nautilus 1.0.5 or newer) rather than a symbolic link.

Another solution is to add symbolic link handling to Nautilus's navigation
code. There's a bug report about this, bug 48353. Feel free to add comments
there if you have any further thoughts. I have tentatively marked this one
to be fixed for 2.0.
