Test script: --------------- How to reproduce bug : - create tar file with one or more symlink on it - extract a tar file containing symlink twice (to create file/symlink already exists condition) Expected result: ---------------- Symlinks correectly added and extracted Actual result: -------------- - on archive creation, symlinks were stored as files/directories they point to - on acrhive extraction, symlink extraction failed if the file/symlink already exists.

This bug has been fixed in CVS. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on pear.php.net by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the pear.php.net website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.
