Nautilus freezes when sshfs-filesystem is mounted

Nautilus freezes when the network connection to a mounted sshfs-filesystem is temporally not available or overloaded. It keeps hanging even if network is back sometimes
I am using sshfs often to mount some remote discs on my local machine. When ever the network connection to one of the remote machines from which I had mounted something, is temporally not available or overloaded, nautlilus hangs. It does not react any more in any manner. So the only thing that gets me out of that is, to force unmount with:
either umount -f or fusermount -u -z
that could lead in loosing important data.
In my opinion this is a very serious bug because it prevents me from using sshfs.
It seems that Nautilus does not recognize a file system mounted via SSHFS to be an remote file system. So it always tries to create preview icons although I turned this feature of for all remote file systems (Preview->Locale file system only). The biggest misbehaviour is, that all instances freeze, if just one is busy, even if the others are used to browse locale files.
This problem does not occur if you use nautilus to browse via sftp by typing the sftp address directly in its address bar.
Does that still happen in nautilus 3.14? On which distribution?
Is this a Nautilus issue at all?
