Description (last modified by dkocher)

I get an error when trying to enter a directory containing symlinks:

Cannot read file attibutes (/path/to/symlink)

Connection is SFTP. Server is proftpd with mod_sftp running on RHEL 6. I have tested this with half a dozen other sftp clients with no issue.

The fix makes the assumption that the server is sending one of the SSH error status code [-1|4,5,8] when attempting to resolve the target of a symbolic link that does not exist. Previously only 3 (PERMISSION_DENIED) was handled which is what we get with the OpenSSH SFTP subsystem.
