#6492 new Bug report

Deleting a symbolic link removes the linked directory content instead of deleting itself

Component version: Operating system type: Linux
Operating system version: any

Description

When attempting to delete a symbolic link on a linux
server, filezilla 3.3.5.1 deletes the content of the
directory pointed by the symbolic link links to
and does not delete the symbolic link itself.

Tbhis is totally unexpected : FileZilla acts the opposite of the rm command.

The expected behaviour is to have the rm command equivalent :

When deleting a symbolic link, it should just delete the symbolic link.
