Release Status: release

Description:
        [[ -L $A ]] matches both symlinks and symlinks to directories

Repeat-By:
        address@hidden:/tmp$ rm a; ln -s . a; if [[ -L a ]]; then echo link; fi;
        link

Fix:
        I anticipate that this can't be changed, either because its
        intentional, or because its been that way since 1950 sh v0.01
        and everyone except me wants it that way.  So, I recommend a
        note in the manpage describing this.

        I know, by the way, that [[ -L ${A}/ ]] does not pass, because
        of the trailing slash.
