[Enhancement] Nautilus should resolve symlinks when copying to a removable device
Last modified: 2015-03-03 17:28:08 EST
Description of problem:
Nautilus attempts to copy the symlinks themselves rather than their contents
when copying to an external device. This results in "operation not permitted"
errors with FAT-based USB memory chips.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Nautilus identifies the target as being removable (or not supporting symlinks)
and copies the data.
