64617[patch] Fix Windows symbolic link removal and file attribute handling
- Mar 31, 2012Here's an updated version of the patch.Problem:1. Saving a file opened via a symbolic link on Windows (Vista and 7) destroys the symbolic link and replaces it with a copy of the file.2. There is also some odd attribute handling with symbolic links; they appear as readonly.--Repro:1. Create a file foo.txt with some text.2. Create a symbolic link 'link.txt' pointing at foo.txt (run as administrator): mklink link.txt .\foo.txt3. Open link.txt in vim and verify that it shows the contents of foo.txt.Bug 1: Notice that the file is flagged as read-only, even though it is not.4. Make some changes and force-save the file with :w!5. Exit vim and check the contents of the directoryBug 2: The symbolic link has been removed and replaced with the edited contents of the file.----
