Description fkater 2003-08-11 09:47:27 UTC
in the open file dialog a link (created with ln -s ...) is displayed as a file
without file name and with 0 bytes in the case that the target points to a
directory which is *not* mounted.

If the directory is mounted then the link is shown correctly in the file open

You should at least show the file name (like other file managers do) even if it
is invalid. Otherwise people don't know that this is a link (like me) end try to
delete it within the file open dialog function (right click) which doesn't work
either in this case. Thanks

HI->TM: Seems to be yours

TM->BH: This is more a wish for an enhancement in displaying "non
file-system"-items in our file-open dialog than a DEFECT. Please have
a look. Thanks !

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
