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
