The problem arises when users create directories using absolute paths where one or more of the path components are symbolic links.

For example, a user executes the following command:
MKD /today/my-directory
Where /today is a symbolic link pointing to /incoming/other/2006-05-16.

The real virtual path is /incoming/other/2006-05-16/my-directory but nxTools only sees /today/my-directory - so that's what it logs. All file related post/pre commands that nxTools hooks (MKD, RMD, STOR, DELE, RNFR, and RNTO) have this same problem.

I'll have to find a way to resolve symbolic links in path names...without significantly slowly down the script.
