Hello Eryk,

thank you for the prompt response. I have only checked that using python2.6 on `wine` and there was no `os.symlink` support there. I'm not sure how to reasonably handle the `dir` flag for Windows as theoretically the symlink can point out of the zip file.

Do you know what happens when the symlink `dir` flag is set inappropriately? I guess it silently continues, but the link wont work, right?

Well I added the `except OSError` part, please let me know, whether this version is acceptable. The situation could only be better as without this patch both OSs are stuck with text files instead of symlinks, this way at least on Linux it should work properly.
