Running ROX-Filer 2.9:
When I create symlinks by dragging-and-dropping, it creates broken links if I drag-and-drop into a symlinked directory.
e.g. dragging between windows: if /0 is a link to /tmp/0, and I drag /bin from a window open in / into a window open in /0, to create a symlink, the link is created to ../bin instead of to ../../bin.
e.g. dragging in the same window: if I only have one window open, in /, and I drag /bin into /0, the broken link is created in the same way.

    Should really have checked first: this problem isn't new with 2.9, but I don't know how long it has been around. I wouldn't be surprised if it is ever since 228691 was implemented...
