Apparently, if you create a File instance using new File("name") and ./name
is a symbolic link then this file's getParent() returns null.

If you create new File(new File("."), "name") you get the current directory as
parent.  Learn something new every day.

As a workaround for your case, use link="./Templates" and the delete succeeds.

Fixed in svn revision 935064

Realized that link is not resolved against basedir but against the current
working directory and didn't dare to change that for backwards compatibility -
will document that.

Many thanks for the testcase.
