That works, thanks!

But isn't there the general problem of mounted directories? I fear, that
calling set-file-modes with nofollow over a symlink into a mounted
directory would show the same error. So I guess it might be better to
simply ignore such an error. Like in my case, you cannot predict whether
a symlink points into a mounted directory.

Best regards, Michael.
