Yes this looks like a duplicate of 1550 which was fixed. My suspicion is that it
has been reintroduced.

Regarding my patch, it is not only trivial but probably insufficient which is
why I have not submitted it and the point I was making Stefan. You made it even
better! (Also, it looks more complicated than it is due to increased indentation
inside new if statement.)

I'm not sure about this backward compatibility issue, especially if 1550 was
recently re-introduced. It seems to me you have to balance this with the
question of whether it does the right thing by default. Few people if any will
be relying on it doing the wrong thing but many more may end up deleting their
data accidentally.

So I still think, change the default, possibly add new features and put a
warning in the docs re SAMBA etc.

I will look into followsymlinks on filesets if I find time.

Regards
