Pardon me if I'm covering ground that has already been discussed but I've been playing around in the RC1 of Alfresco 1.4 and noticed something that I wanted some more input on. I was investigating the use of symbolic links within Alfresco. I created FOLDER X in the Company Home and put a simple text file (FILE 1) into FOLDER X. I then created FOLDER Y and created a link to FILE 1 in FOLDER Y. I went back to FOLDER X and deleted FILE 1. I went to FOLDER Y and looked at its contents. The link to FILE 1 was still there despite the original file having been deleted. When I clicked on the 'View Details' option of the symbolic link, I got the following error:

javax.faces.FacesException: Cannot get value for expression '#{DocumentDetailsBean.webdavUrl}'
caused by:
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Cannot get value for expression '#{DocumentDetailsBean.webdavUrl}'

Am I going about things in the right way? Is there a cascade delete option that will remove the symbolic links when you delete the original file? Is this a problem due to the fact I'm using the RC release?
