Gnome-terminal new tab within exact same path


I'm using gnome-terminal and open multiple tabs for the same path. The behavior of gnome-terminal is to change to the real (canonical) path rather than the exact original path.

E.g. a new tab opened in /home/user/data/project will be in /mnt/data/project if /home/user/data is a symlink to /mnt/data.

In this case, it is not much an issue, but I have some weirder paths :
/cifs/project -> /home/user/.gvfs/partage on server/organisation/OU/projects/project
and I the latter doen't look great on my prompt.

So, the question is : is there a way to open a new tab in the exact same path, rather than in the realpath, of the previous tab ?
