+for how ms plans to deal with symbolic links in future releases.
+Not all the mono io-layer code handles symlinks correctly according to
+that link, but the DirectoryInfo change is correct in its current
+behaviour.  A simple C test on windows also shows GetFileAttributes()
+called on a symlink to a directory returns info on the symlink.
