I've installed 2.8.7dev.4 only to find that my ~/.mailcap, which
is a symlink, isn't found anymore by LYUtils.c .

Rereading the code, it seems that if you created the link as root,
that would confuse it.

The default return value for IsOurFile is FALSE, shouldn't it be
rather TRUE?
Anyway, changing that fixed it for me. I see this code area hasn't
changed recently but others have, so I'm not sure what has broken this
and how to fix it "properly", other than with the attached patch.

EVERY effort counts: at least to show your attitude.
You're responsible for ALL of it: you get what you give.
