#1860: Symbolic Links Downloaded as Target File

     Type:  defect            |      Status:  new          
 Priority:  normal            |   Milestone:               
Component:  core              |     Version:  2.8.4        
 Severity:  normal            |    Keywords:  symbolic link
 I am trying to mirror a remote FTP directory that contains a number of
 symbolic links. The symbolic links are recognized as links in the "Get
 Info" panel. When Cyberduck downloads one of the symbolic links the local
 directory ends up containing the target of the link instead of a link. The
 permissions of the local copy are also wrong (-rwxr-xr-x instead of -rw-r

 All of this leads me to conclude that even though Cyberduck understands
 that the file is a link it resolves the link and transfers the destination
 file instead of creating a link locally. I think this behavior is wrong or
 at least warrants a preferences setting.
