Description (last modified by andrew_b) (diff)

When copying two symlinks (to two directories containing multiple (large) files and directories) using "Follow links" the output is all wrong. See attached files.

The directory structure is something like this:

$ ls -RF
.:
1  2
$ ls -RF
.:
01/  02/

./01:
a/  b/

./01/a:
1  2  3@  e/  s/

./01/a/e:
1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9

./01/a/s:
1

./01/b:
1  2  3  4  5@  a/

./01/b/a:

./02:
1  2

During the copy operation the screen/gui change from mc-1.png to mc-2.png and back.
The symlinks are for the directories 01 and 02.

Could you please create a small tar file with such directory contents? Or just show the output of ls -lR.

Just replace at least one file in each directory with a large iso file.
Thank you.
