Hi Paul,

Ahhh, symlinks that are named the same way ... didn't think of that.

Fixed in the repo, should be in tomorrows rebuild (if I can commit my
changes during the train ride or any time later on my business trip)

The change is trivial, edit mktexlsr.pl and add in the one
	File::Find::find( { follow_fast => $opt_follow, ...
line a setting
		follow_skip => 2
that is that it looks like
	File::Find::find( { follow_skip => 2, follow_fast => $opt_follow, ...

All the best
