--- Begin Message ---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. -- System Information: Debian Release: lenny/sid APT prefers unstable APT policy: (500, 'unstable') Architecture: i386 (i686) Kernel: Linux 184.108.40.206 (PREEMPT) Locale: LANG=en_US.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8) Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/bash Versions of packages exiv2 depends on: ii libc6 2.7-8 GNU C Library: Shared libraries ii libexiv2-2 0.16-3 EXIF/IPTC metadata manipulation li ii libgcc1 1:4.3-20080202-1 GCC support library ii libstdc++6 4.3-20080202-1 The GNU Standard C++ Library v3 exiv2 recommends no packages. -- no debconf information
