Marco,

Thanks for looking deeper into it.
I would like to check the solution ASAP.
We have really crazy dir structure which can catch a lot of
the unexpected problems with paths, links, circular links etc.

Should I expect the new version to generate the exception
as you suggested?

Best Regards,
    Sywlester Warecki
