Please add any problems you find with the alpha release to this page.

Sym link to Webs directory after running TWikiUnixInstaller causes problems

Odd one this. In the TWikiUnixInstaller I enforce some data & code separation that's backwards compatible with the current format - I move templates, data & pub directories relating to a web into a subdirectory format:

|-- Example
|   |-- Daily
|   |-- data
|   |-- pub
|   |   `-- IncorrectDllVersionW32PTH10DLL
|   `-- templates
|-- People
|   |-- Daily
Then symlinks get made in the original data/pub/templates directories. Nothing special really. This all works fine with all previous releases of TWiki, and works with the latest alpha as of today (3/7/3). However I've taken to having an extra level of indirection. In my twiki home rather than having:
# ls -l |grep webs
drwx------   10 wwwrun   nogroup       213 2003-07-03 00:06 webs
I tend to have:
# ls -l |grep webs
lrwxrwxrwx    1 wwwrun   nogroup        18 2003-07-03 00:18 webs -> /home/webs/

With every TWiki release prior to the latest alpha this works. In the latest alpha this breaks... I'm not sure why this is at the moment. The symlinks in the data/pub/templates directories are still fine and look no different so something slightly odd is going on. No errors get logged by apache, TWiki just comes back saying that no web exists - which is very odd.

(This could be argued as best sorted out as a search, but that'll need a page anyway)
