When attempting to delete a symbolic link on a linux
server, filezilla 184.108.40.206 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.
