Description of problem:
Gthumb gets confused after seeing a relative symlinks at root
directory.  The result is that no thumbnails are shown.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a symlink at root directory: 
   # cd /; ln -s tmp t
2. Copy some image files to /tmp
3. Run gthumb at the symlinked directory: 
   $ cd /t; gthumb $PWD

Actual Results:  No thumbnails for any of the images in /t (/tmp) are
shown and the following messages are printed:

** (gthumb:9020): WARNING **: Too many links

(gthumb:9020): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: gsignal.c:2309: signal name
`error' is invalid for instance `0x81d37a8'

Expected Results:  Thumbnails are generated and shown in the gthumb
file browser.
