      Description

      I'm using BlueJ on a Mac (i.e. Unix filesystem). When I "Open Project", I get
      a
      file-open dialog for the current directory. If that directory contains
      symbolic
      links, I see the names of their targets rather than the names of the links.

      Specifically, I have a "class" directory with an "archive" subdirectory, which
      in turn has a subdirectory for each of the courses I teach, and each of those
      has a subdirectory for each of the semesters I've taught it. But for
      convenience, the "class" directory has symlinks to the current semester's
      courses, e.g. "172 -> archive/172/fall2006" and "270 -> archive/270/fall2006"
      The BlueJ "open project" dialog doesn't show me "172" or "270", but rather two
      different directories named "fall2006", with no way to tell which is which.
      Since I happen to know what the symlinks are, I can work around it by going
      into
      "archive", then the appropriate course number, then "fall2006", but that's
      inconvenient -- and it wouldn't work if I didn't know the symlinks.
