Step 3 of Mail Merge Wizard.
Try to add a address source (ods).
Inside the FilePick dialog open a shortcut (aka link/alias) to a folder.
=> The shortcut is used, rather than simply navigating to that folder and
displaying the content to choose the ods file.

Not a MailMerge issue!
passed to OS.

Similar to issue 4306
The system's file dialog doesn't support short cuts correctly. Cannot be fixed.
