 I'm having a FTP-Server wish chroots every user in their /User/xy
 directory. But because of you need to edit other files too sometimes, I
 created symlinks out of the jail. Cyberduck and Mountain Duck try to
 resolve the Orginal Path, and this is failing.

 Things to reproduce:
 * Create a FTP-Server wish supports chroot (I'm using PureFTPd)
 * Enable chrooting
 * create a chroot wish points OUTSIDE the chroot.

 Cyberduck will not show this Files, Mountain duck will fail with an error
 (see attachment)
 In Cyberduck I could fix this issue myself by commenting the part wish
 tries to look the origin Path out.
