The latest snapshot still has the symlink bug. in fhandler_disk_file::open
    set_symlink_p (real_path.symlink_p);

set_symlink_p() and get_symlink_p() is a bitwise operator, then
get_symlink_p() always return 1 regardless of whether symlink_p
is negative or not. I think this should be the following.

    set_symlink_p (real_path.symlink_p > 0);
