User is trying to add a symbolic link to a directory into the depot, and instead, AccuRev adds the file that it points to.
How does AccuRev handle symbolic links?
AccuRev does not currently have a way to version symbolic links. If you add a symbolic link to a depot, AccuRev will follow the link and add the file that is pointed to by the link.
FYI, A link-based workspace is a way of making your workspaces smaller by populating the workspace with links that point to a reference tree. Since many developers can point to the same reference tree, it can save a lot of disk space. It does not allow you to actually version symbolic links within the depot.
