I have just subscribed. I guess it was about time after using it for

I don't think so.

I'm at Thunar-1.6.10_2, gvfs-1.26.3_2. I don't see gvfsd-network in ps:
pacija at efreet:~ % ps x | grep gvfs

1171 - S 0:00,08 /usr/local/libexec/gvfs-hal-volume-monitor

Did the change but no improvements.

I thought that from '...automounted NFS shares' in subject it will be
clear that I am using autofs, but I see now I should explain it in more
pacija at efreet:~ % sudo cat /etc/auto_master
/net -hosts -nobrowse,nosuid,intr
How client sees exports on server:
pacija at efreet:~ % showmount -E mephala

This was my understanding as well. Perhaps some fight between the two?
