I have tried both Xffm and Thunar. Thunar really needs a nice set of 
icons BTW.

Why not work with rox-filer. It can mount directories that are mapped in 
fstab. It can do desktop icons. It can do everything you want except an 
explorer like tree (imho I think that a file tree confuses people more 
then it helps them. Namely because you can only write to /home /tmp and 
/var/tmp or a mounted drive). It is also stable.
