Bug: Symlink handling in org-babel-load-file

From: Ricky Saurav
Subject: Bug: Symlink handling in org-babel-load-file
Date: Fri, 31 Jan 2020 02:52:24 +0530

The org-babel-load-file behavior for symlinks seems to have changed
between org-9.1.5(emacs 26.3) and org-9.3(emacs 27.0.6).

The change seems to be that org-9.3 gets the modification time for the
file, which org-9.1.5 resolves the file in case the orginial file is a
symlink before doing the same.

My literate config.org and init.el are located at ~/dotfiles/emacs/.emacs.d/config.org
and ~/dotfiles/emacs/.emacs.d/init.el respectively.
The above files are then symlinked to ~/.emacs.d using stow.
The tangled file for ~/.emacs.d/config.org is then located at
~/.emacs.d/config.el (this file is not a symlink).

What did I do?
Changed ~/.emacs.d/config.org and restarted emacs.

What did I expect to happen?
Expect tangled ~/.emacs.d/config.el to be updated with the new
changed and loaded as was the case in org-9.1.5(emacs 26.3)

What happened instead?
The file ~/.emacs.d/config.el was not updated and the old file was
loaded. This happens because in org-9.3,the tangled ~/.emacs.d/config.el is always
newer than the symlink ~/.emacs.d/config.org despite the fact that the
resolved file  ~/dotfiles/emacs/.emacs.d/config.org has been changed.

Remember to cover the basics, that is, what you expected to happen and
what in fact did happen.  You don't know how to make a good report?  See


Your bug report will be posted to the Org mailing list.
