bug#4739: 23.1.50; recursive delete fails

From: Sven Joachim
Subject: bug#4739: 23.1.50; recursive delete fails
Date: Fri, 16 Oct 2009 22:02:45 +0200
User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/23.1.50 (gnu/linux)

In the following situation Emacs signals an error:

$ mkdir -p /tmp/test
$ ln -s /tmp /tmp/test
$ emacs -Q /tmp

Now move point to the 'test' directory, type 'D' and confirm that you
want to delete the directory recursively.  An error message appears in
the echo area:
(file-error Removing directory Not a directory /tmp/test/tmp)

In GNU Emacs (i486-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.18.2)
 of 2009-10-13 on turtle
(Sorry for not checking a newer version -- Savannah appears to be down,
 so I cannot upgrade ATM.)

Windowing system distributor `The X.Org Foundation', version 11.0.10605000
configured using `configure  '--build=i486-linux-gnu' 
'build_alias=i486-linux-gnu' 'CFLAGS=-DGTK_DISABLE_DEPRECATED -g -O2''
