Just to avoid misunderstandings: I just wanted to know, when the IDE should
do the symlink check and what it should do on finding one. Anjuta,
moleskine, emacs, ... every editor does it differently.

If I understand it correct, you suggest to do a symlink check whenever a
file is opened automatically in the editor. Should there be a message or
should it automatically go to the already opened file?
