Package: exiv2
Version: 0.16-3
Severity: important


Take a jpg file with exif data.

Make a symlink to the file (I used a file of the same name in a
different directory).

Run exiv2, adding a field to the file.

Expected behaviour: strictly undefined, but I would think that the
operation would be done on the linked-to file.

Two problems: (1) The link is no longer a link, and (2) the linked-to
file is overwritten and has length 0.  ie. it has been completely
destroyed.

For example, there exists IMG_4590.jpg in ~/Desktop.  Now I do

cd /tmp
ln -s ~/Desktop/IMG_4590.jpg
exiv2 -M"add Exif.Image.Copyright foo" IMG_4590.jpg
ls -l ~/Desktop/IMG_4590.jpg

The original file is fubar.

As I havent' heard any thing back I'm closing you report, if you are still 
having this issue, then please reopen with moreinfo.

Thanks,
