This problem showed when trying to use FileUtils.sizeOfDirectory() of a directory that contained a symlink to a file that did not exist. I got the exception:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: /tmp/test/link does not exist
And /tmp/test/link is here linking to a file that do not exist.
The trace comes from a unit test that looks like:
assertTrue(FileUtils.sizeOfDirectory(new File("/tmp/test/")) > 0);
I would expect that either isSymlink() reported true even though the link is to a file that do not exist or sizeOfDirectory() should not bail out when encountering non-existing files.
