Wat? The symlink folds out but not the real folder?!

✓ gnarf@air:tmpproj$ rm test1
✓ gnarf@air:tmpproj$ ln -s test4 test5

Quit and restart sublime: screenshot

Some other variants...

✓ gnarf@air:tmpproj$ rm test5
✓ gnarf@air:tmpproj$ mkdir a
✓ gnarf@air:tmpproj$ mkdir b
✓ gnarf@air:tmpproj$ mv test4 b
✓ gnarf@air:tmpproj$ cd a
✓ gnarf@air:a$ ln -s ../b/test4/ test4

I would say all of these are wrong - even the symlinks should fold out with the contents
