I discovered that dir_check_this() in dir.c did not work correctly when the
path passed to it is a symlink to a directory. Because it does a pathdup(),
which obtains the real path of the file, it would update the real directory,
and not the directory in which the symlink is located, which (in this
particular situation) was the one most likely to be visible.
I have submitted a patch to sourceforge ("Fix dir_check_this() for symlinked
directories") that fixes this problem. I made it rescan both the real
directory and the path as passed, to account for both cases.
