problem with konqueror: howto _not_ search for .directory

when I want to list the root directory in konqueror I get a time out between 
20-40s which I don't like. 
strace konqueror tells me the problem is searching for /home/.directory

The problem is, home directories are automounted here. So LDAP looks for a 
user name .directory all over the place before failing which explains the 
time out. 

How can I exclude certain directories (or whole trees) from beeing searched 
for .directory?

Sorry if this is rtfm but I have no idea how to search for this feature/bug.
