Hi Michael,

Thank you for your patch. It worked fine with emacs 23 on Ubuntu 8.04.
I've also tried the patched tramp 2.1.13 with emacs 22.1 on Windows
Vista. It seems that this also allowed the Windows emacs to read and
save symbolic link files correctly on the remote Solaris 10 machine,
except for some initial warning and interactions (I have to type some
"yes" to proceed). In the Windows Vista emacs 22.1, for symbolic links
that point to cvs controlled file, it directly opened the target file
(which is fine).

There is one small issue (that I've noticed for a long time). After
saving, the target file's permission is always set to be "-rwxrwxrwx"
regardless of the original one. For example, the target file is
" (-rw-------)" the symbolic link is " (always
lrwxrwxrwx)"  After opening "" through tramp and saving
something, "" now has a permission of "-rwxrwxrwx".  It there a
way to retain the target file's original permission after saving
through the symbolic link file?
