add s-links support when restricted-uid/gid clauses are used

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-01-12 13:39:35 UTC
This is impossible.
restricted-uid, guestgroup etc. do a chroot() for security reasons, meaning at
this time, / is the home directory, and anything outside the home directory is
not accesible.
symlinks that leave a chroot jail are generally not possible.
