(More) questions about Nautilus burn:///

I'm trying to burn a CD containing a particular directory, which has 100 MB in it, according to du. When I put it into the Nautilus burn:/// window in RedHat 9 and try to write the CD, Nautilus reports that it's preparing to write a CD containing 3435 megabytes, which is obviously wrong. This directory is a user directory, and I'm guessing that the disparity is because the Nautilus code is following some links, like down into .gnome_directory and back into the home directory that contains .gnome_directory, and so on. Or something -- I'm really just guessing here. If I try to burn the directory with X-CD-Roast, everything is fine (that is, it burns 100 MB).

Anyway, does this make sense out there? Do I have a configuration problem, or is this the way it's "supposed" to work, or is there a way I can tell Nautilus to not follow links (presuming that this is what's happening)? It's not that I have anything against X-CD-Roast, but the burn:/// utility is kinda nice....
