#1166: SFTP can't list directory contents if broken symlink present
 Reporter:  stuporglue  |       Owner:  dkocher

 Priority:  normal      |   Milestone:                                                                
Component:  core        |     Version:  2.8b1                                                         
 Severity:  normal      |    Keywords:  symlink, listing, directory, failed, reference, does not exist
 Had a broken symlink on my server and Cyberduck choked until link was

 To test:
 On an SFTP connection, create a broken symlink (ln -s foo bar, where bar
 doesn't exist)
 Connect to that server. Cyberduck will give the message:
 "SSH Error: Listing directory failed
 A reference was made to a file which does not exist"

 Remove the broken link, and the problem goes away.

 Why it's bad: The only two options after this error dialog are "Cancel"
 and "Try Again". Any directories after the broken link alphabetically
 aren't shown.

 What it should do: Show the link in red and continue?
