Description Simon Peeters 2012-04-10 17:58:28 EDT
Description of problem:
when i let baobab scan a windows 7 partition it keeps getting into infinite loops because of some symlinks.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. let baobab scan an ntfs partition with this special kind of symlink
Actual results:
baobab follows the symlink

Expected results:
baobab skips the symlink

Additional info:
there is something special about this kind of symlinks,
stat reports that it is a symlink, but that it has 2 links, which is the only difference I see from the normal symlinks
Comment 1 Erik van Pienbroek 2012-08-18 09:00:49 EDT
This bug is caused by a bug in the ntfs-3g package.

A bugreport was filed upstream and they've already proposed a patch which resolves this issue: http://tuxera.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=29578

I just filed a ticket to the ntfs-3g maintainer in Fedora asking to apply this patch in the Fedora ntfs-3g package: bug 849332
