    The problem is only there if you specify a directory for the linked to
    component.

    [marcus@wine /tmp]$ strace -f ln -s fupp/berk xxx
    execve("/bin/ln", ["ln", "-s", "fupp/berk", "xxx"], [/* 39 vars */]) = 0
    ... ld stuff ... locale stuff ...
    lstat64("xxx", 0xbffff47c) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
    lstat64("xxx", 0xbffff47c) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
    symlink("fupp/berk", "xxx") = 0
    _exit(0) = ?
    [marcus@wine /tmp]$ ll xxx
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 marcus users 3 May 30 22:36 xxx -> xxx
    [marcus@wine /tmp]$ uname -a
    Linux wine.lst.de 2.4.5-ac4 #3 SMP Tue May 29 18:24:07 CEST 2001 i686 unknown
    [marcus@wine /tmp]$

    It works just wonderful with previous kernels.

    Ciao, Marcus
