Before I want to know, if Thunar is running in daemon mode (for faster startup).

Can you display result of ps x | grep thunar?

NFS bug is well known, fixes since 1.5.x (according to Xfce's bug tracker). In fact problem often comes from gvfs (in your case gvfsd-network).

If you change value of AutoMount (true -> false) in /usr/local/share/gvfs/mounts/network.mount is there notable changes?
