[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#565976: squeeze: create an archive in a folder contained in a symbolic link records absolute paths

Package: squeeze
Version: 0.2.3-8
Severity: normal

Let's say i have a folder : ~/test1/
And ln -s /home/foo/test1 test2

If i add a file to the archive taken from test2, the created archive contains absolute paths, like /home/foo/test2
whereas if i compress in test1/, the created archive contains relative paths.

This is more obvious when creating an archive from thunar context menu :
in test2 : absolute paths
in test1 : relative paths
