I used to be an active contributor to mc, until "you know what"
happened :-/ The panels of nc3 are my first memory of a computer ;-)

Okay, I managed to compile 4.8.13 with libssh2, and even got to login
into local host (for some reason I'm unable to connect to any remote
hosts though), so I copied a symlink to a large file and it just did
exactly that (copied the symlink, not the file). Then I tried to simply
copy a large file to see if I can reproduce the problem anyways, and it
didn't work. I guess my libssh2 version (1.2.6-1) is too old...

In the mean time, can you tell me what the symlink layout is?

Sincerely yours,
Yury V. Zaytsev
