Re: Symlink handling in svn status broken (Was: Junction Point bug report and possible solution)

Thought I would try to draw some attention to this again, as it has been
another few months.

It seems like such a simple bug with a simple fix. The code sets a
variable in a structure to indicate that the object is a file if
apr_stat says it is a file, or a directory if apr_stat says it is a
directory, but if apr_stat says it is a link, the code assumes it is a
file and sets the object type to file. It seems obvious that it needs
to check if the link is to a directory, and if so, set the type to
directory, not file.

Could someone take a look at this one?
