Subject: [boost] [filesystem]: infinite-recursion with symlink
From: variadic.template (variadic.template_at_[hidden])

While playing around with boost::filesystem and the
recursive_directory_iterator, I'm
running into a infinite-recursion caused by symlinks. Not following
would be, a solution, of course, but...
So, is there a way to ascertain the path where the symlink is aiming at?
And a second question: I didn't find anything about permission-handling -
are there any plans? In my eyes, this is something essential
for a filesystem-library.

Thanks in advance
