Update of bug #19649 (project coreutils):

                  Status:                    None => Wont Fix               


Follow-up Comment #1:

This behavior change was in coreutils 5.3 (dated 2005-01-08) and was for
compatibility with BSD and POSIX. To get the behavior you prefer, use chown
-h. On BSD systems, chown has followed symlinks for quite some time.
