Description Bobi Jam 2008-02-28 22:08:09 EST
Description of problem:

getfacl (btw my getfacl version is 2.2.39, belongs to
acl-2.2.39-1.1) just literally find the link target with `pwd`+[symbol
content], regardless where the link file is located.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkdir d; set an acl list for d.
2. mkdir d/d; set another different acl list for d/d.
3. create a symbol link d/l whose symbol content is 'd'.
4. getfacl --omit-header d/l 
  (during this procedure, don't chdir)
Actual results:
acl list of d/d

Expected results:
acl list of d
Comment 1 Jiri Moskovcak 2008-04-10 09:14:18 EDT
According to rhbz#223840 this is fixed in acl-2.2.39-2.1 and this package 
should be available in RHEL-5.1. Closing as duplicate.
