Hmm, I could add the "application/x-vnd.Be-symlink" in the recognized types for DiskUsage (that would fix this issue), but it would also propose the DiskUsage add-on when you right click on any symlink, even if it points to a regular file rather than a folder. It still works, it will do the DiskUsage, for the parent folder; but it's cluttering the Add-On submenu..

Does it makes sense? Well, in other word, there is a one liner that fixes this, but isn't really optimal.

On the other hand, I think the cleanest solution would be to traverse the symlink and get the mime type of the target to select the usable add-ons..

Indeed, Tracker should detect symlinks (and show all add-ons with Be-symlink support), but also show all add-ons that can work with the target.
