symlinks work fine here, and the only code that checks symlinks  
(make_directory in file_list.cc) hasn't changed at all in the past  
months. There are no lstat() or readlink() calls anywhere else in  
libtorrent/rtorrent (aside from the explicit create_link/delete_link  
functions). So the problem you are experiencing (whatever it may be;  
you didn't explain the problem) is likely something else and not  
related to symlinks.
