MacOS: directory view does not follow directory aliases

MacOS is capable of creating aliases of files as well as directories (equivalent to links under Linux) by means of Ctrl-clicking on the required object and selecting "Make alias" (and generally renaming the result after moving it so it no longer has "alias" added, but I digress. Filezilla currently does not see these as directory links to follow, but as files and thus tries to open them instead.

As far as I can tell it does appear to follow a file alias, I suspect that's because that gets immediately handed off to the file system.

Interim fix is to visit the actual directory manually, which somewhat negates the whole point of those shortcuts :).

Filezilla: 3.41.2
MacOS: Mojave 10.14.4

Cheers, Peter
