I hunted around awhile in the local Pep Boys type places, and eventually I found something that works (mostly).

It's a two-piece thing, one piece is a ring which can mount to a dashboard, the other piece is a small ashtray that fits into the ring. If you find the right model, the ashtray fits right into one of the cupholders (and you throw the mounting ring away.) I tried several different models until I found one which fit the cupholders.

This ashtray is still located in an awkward position, and the cupholder lid doesn't quite close all the way with the ashtray in place, but it's the best I've been able to come up with so far.
