File browsers Nautilus, Dolphin not showing RAID sets, but member disks on Fedora 16

Running Fedora 16 fully updated to 5/5/2012.
My desktop has 3 fakeraid RAID1 sets, i.e. 6 disks paired in mirroring pairs.
Nautilus and Dolphin show the individual disks, in addition to the RAID sets. I don't dare to open the disks shown, perhaps risking to modify
a member disk directly, causing a time-consuming recovery of the mirrored set, or perhaps corrupting the file system, so that I am not sure what really these triplicate entries mean (same disk label appearing three times - I *presume* that once for each physical disk and once for the RAID set - I don't know which is which).

I consider this a severe bug, as one is not supposed to access directly
individual disks of RAID sets. But before I post a bug report, is there some kind of 'configuration' for these file browsers to make them behave reasonably?
