just checked the test on symlinks. ReaR creates the iso file now in  
both cases. That should make Rear more robust against unconventional  
packages and/or administrative symlinks.

The problems didn't occur earlier because the first problem is only on  
a tiny fraction of machines which has additional IBM packages  
installed. The second problem appeared after the tsm client was  
updated (new package) a month ago.
Unfortunately i have no control over those packages so we can't fix  
the problem
easily by repacking.

As some bad packages are more the norm than an exception in large  
installations rear should be as robust as possible in that area.
