Delete follows symbolic links to directories

           Summary: Delete follows symbolic links to directories
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5.3
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Major
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: brian.compton@wmg.com


I know this was reported before (#1550 and #13353), but I got bit by this today 
and I'm not sure whether anyone plans on fixing this. #13353 has a status 
of "RESOLVED WONTFIX", but I can't imagine that this can be considered 
resolved. Basically, the fact that this bug exists I can no longer use "<delete 
dir=...>", because I cannot be sure that someone did not go into a directory 
and establish a symbolic link to another directory. The default behavior 
for "<delete dir=...>" should be to not follow symbolic links.
