I ported AMD to OS X a while back and cranked it up, and set it up to do the mounting magic... and as soon as Finder noticed there were network filesystems it didn't expect it tossed a bunch of completely WRONG network icons on the desktop (including, at one point, one called '/') and went catatonic. When I restarted Finder it went out and found those non-network shares again and pulled the blanket over its head. It did the same when I logged out and whan I rebooted. I had to boot single-user and stop AMD from starting up to Finder has this model of How Network Shares Work that is programmed into its sorry Carbon-based DNA and this model completely fails to make contact with any rational design at any point, and you can't do anything about it.
