Thanks for the feedback !

Can you mark it as superseded in BB then ?

Most of the problems were to make the bug reveal itself as it has a
furious tendency to stay hidden :-) Then came the understanding that
os.readlink in python-2.5 has at least two bugs (regarding the way bzr
intends to use it at least)...

I'm very happy to hear that :)

And thanks for your earlier work on the subject, it helps me a lot.
