Re: Is 'Make Link' a 'FAIL' awaiting a bug-fix?

Running Ubuntu 10.04, I can NOT confirm this. In nautilus, links created using the command line (ln -s) as well as a link created using 'make link' correctly reflect the size of the file that the link points to (I need to press <F5> to refresh the links but the original file is immediately updated).
Command line is another story; links are fixed size. Those created on the command line are 7 bytes, those created using 'make link' are 22 bytes.
Conclusion; in 10.04, Nautilus follows the link and gives the size of the target.

If you don't make backups of your important data, your data is obviously not important to you.
