Description of problem:
A scan for dangling symlinks finds 2 of them, both from the foomatic package.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RedHat Linux v7.2, selecting the package set Everything.
2. After the initial boot of the system, run this:
symlinks -tr / | grep dangling
Actual Results: Two dangling symlinks were found:
dangling: /usr/share/foomatic/db/compiled -> /var/cache/foomatic/compiled
dangling: /usr/share/foomatic/db/pcache -> /var/cache/foomatic/pcache
Expected Results: No dangling symlinks should be found.
They're created when printconf is first run, iirc.b

I also have this problem.
System: RedHat 7.2.
As an extension, any symlink I (either manually of from a script) have created
since after completing the install, results in a dangling symlink. Is it
possible there could be a problem with the ext3 drivers?
The problem isn't ext3-specific. I see it on ext2 filesystems.
