[Samba] DFS symlinks shown as broken through file management software.

I have setup a samba dfs server and file managers on linux only see 
broken symlinks. Is there a linux file managers that can handle the dfs 
symlinks correctly?
So far I tried thunar, nautilus and Gnome commander. All is failing with 
the dfs symlinks.

Commandline navigation seems to work fine through mounted volume and 
windows clients can navigate around the shared volume with explorer 
without issue.

Any thoughts?
