Re: Is 'Make Link' a 'FAIL' awaiting a bug-fix?
OK, I think I've found your problem. When you edit your symlink with gedit, the backup is a regular file (not a symlink to the backup).
wim@i3-2120:~/test$ ls -l
-rw-rw-r-- 1 wim wim 231 Oct 16 16:26 abc.txt
-rw-rw-r-- 1 wim wim 111 Oct 16 16:23 abc.txt~
lrwxrwxrwx 1 wim wim 22 Oct 16 16:24 Link to abc.txt -> /home/wim/test/abc.txt
-rw-rw-r-- 1 wim wim 221 Oct 16 16:26 Link to abc.txt~
12.04 behaves the same as 10.04 as described in post #9

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