file transfer and symbolic links

Hi all,

I am using TV to access my home PC (running linux) from my phone (Android). I can access my desktop without problems. I can also trasfer files between android and linux, but I found that in the file transfer UI, when navigating the linux file system, symbolic links are not followed, even when they point to folders. Is this an oversight or a wanted/necessary behaviour for technical reasons? Can the next version correct this?

Obviously not a show-stopper, but I have many folders links in my home, and having to remember the physical path when using TV to transfer files is unnecessary burden and error prone.
