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)
