Description William Jojo 2010-01-21 06:52:01 UTC
The readlink() call on AIX can return ERANGE which is currently not handled.

This patch fixes an invalid test of readlink() which is not correctly identifying broken readlink() calls.

Pushed to master, thanks. I think this needs to go into 3.3 and 3.4 as well. Ack from my side.

Oh, that's elegant ! Re-assigning to Karolin for inclusion in 3.5.0, 3.4.6 and 3.3.11.
