Description Jan Martinek 2002-10-24 20:38:52 UTC
Description of Problem:
while browsing remote ftp filesystem, mc
sees symlinks to directories as broken in case when symlink
is created with a slash on its end, like
linktodir -> directory/
and when attempt is made to follow the link in mc, error "No action taken"
is displayed. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

mc-4.5.55-12.i386.rpm

How Reproducible:
try this:
mc ftp://uf.fce.vutbr.cz/pub/testsymlinks

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make a symlink to a directory and add a slash "/" to the end
   of the symlink name.
2. connect to such filesystem via ftp (using mc)
3. the link named "link/" will appear as broken

Actual Results:
the link is shown as broken

Expected Results:
links should work as expected, double slash should be interpretted
as a single slash

Additional Information:

Would the FTP server be a Windows box? You can't add slashes to the
end of a link name on Linux...

Could you setup another test URL?

This seems to be fixed by upstream in mc-4.6.1a-0.9.
