Tracker won't copy symlinks

Description (last modified by )
This is hrev47801.
When copying folders around, I get this alert when Tracker happens on a symlink:
Error copying file "libWebKit.so": No Error (14) Would you like to continue? [Cancel] [OK]
Choosing [OK], the file then isn't copied. If the file the link points to is among those that are copied, the link could then point to the copied file. Maybe that alert could be changed to giving the user the choice to
a) point the link to the copied file (if the target is part of the copy job)
b) keep the link pointed to the original target,
c) let the user choose the new target with a file panel d) continue without copying (the current behaviour.
I guess a) would be the default behaviour.
I'm not sure if this a bug, if Tracker always behaved like this or if it's an enhancement.
