#1156: Directory listing fails when symlink target file is not present
 Reporter:  djaeggi  |       Owner:  dkocher
     Type:  defect   |      Status:  new    
 Priority:  normal   |   Milestone:         
Component:  core     |     Version:  2.8b1  
 Severity:  major    |    Keywords:         
 I have access to a number of machines with a NFS /home mount. Let's say I
 have access to machines A & B. On machine A, I have symlinks to files and
 directories which are local to machine A. I.e.

 lrwxrwxrwx   1 djaeggi djaeggi    26 2006-09-29 09:24 backup ->

 (where /export is a local disk on machine A).

 On machine B, this symlink still exists but the target does not. This
 should be fine, that's just life!

 However, when I login to machine B using cyberduck, the directory listing
 fails with the error message:

 SSH Error: Listing directory failed

 A reference was made to a file which does not exist. This error is a
 complete stopper for me, because the directory listing fails and I only
 get a partial listing (it looks like it only lists files/directories up to
 the point of the first symlink failure, then nothing more).

 The version is:

 Version 2.8b1 (3161)

 Hope this makes sense! Thanks.
