#139: Existing symbolic links not deleted
  Reporter:  eschnett       |       Owner:  eric9
      Type:  defect         |      Status:  new  
  Priority:  major          |   Milestone:       
 Component:  GetComponents  |     Version:       
Resolution:                 |    Keywords:       

Comment (by eschnett):

 The "destination" is the symlink that is to be created. Since
 GetComponents never tries to create a symlink for the Cactus directory
 itself, this is not an issue. Creating a symlink inside a symlink works
 fine with the "-n" option; the only difference it makes is if the
 destination already exists. The destination is not the directory that will
 contain the symlink, but the symlink itself that is to be created.
