[kde] NFS Symlinks on Desktop

I have several workstations that access an NFS server. The technical level of my users is quite low.

The network shares are mounted in fstab during boot and appear to mount without issues. I have placed symlinks in the user's Desktop folders to those mountpoints. Sometimes this works perfectly. Other times, especially upon initial boot/startup/login, the Desktop will reflect unknown filetype icons for these links and refuse to open them with Dolphin.

The mount points appear valid while the invalid icons appear. Deleting and re-creating the symlinks solves the problem - but doesn't give me a good long-term solution. I'm at the point that I may have the symlinks deleted and re-created as part of a post-login script.

Any ideas why this is breaking?
