DISCLAIMER: I haven't really followed this thread much ...

But, I just wanted to say that even though it is not consistent with the
traditional Unix way, the "expand symlinks" behaviour in Nautilus is quite
useful. In fact it makes more sense since we have a "Back" and "Up"
button. If I follow a symlink and want to go back to my previous directory
tree I press "Back", but if I want to go up in the new directory tree I
press "Up". Makes a lot of sense to me.

One could argue the reason the shell doesn't do it like that is because
there is no "cd <go back>" command. ;)

Just my two cents,
