#1317: Wrong VDB CONTENTS when there are symbolic links in the filesystem
------------------------+--------------------------
    Reporter:  h.venev  |       Type:  defect

------------------------+--------------------------
 Suppose the image contains the following:
 dir /a
 obj /a/b

 Suppose the following exists in the filesystem:
 /a -> /c
 /c/

 Paludis will rename /a/b to /c/b in the VDB CONTENTS. This is wrong and
 portage does not do this.

 There is no reason to do so. If the symlink stays, everything is OK.
 However if the symlink was a mistake there is no easy way to separate the
 files.
