Synchronise -> symbolic linked files -> always uploaded

Hello !

I'm using WinSCP everyday to synchronise local windows dev station and remote linux debian server, it's working very well and I love it 8)

My problem is when I synchonize folders who have "symbolic link" (ln -s) files on the debian side, WinSCP will always upload those files from local dev station.
The problem is because even WinSCP upload the file to his symbolic link place, the symbolic link modification date don't change on the linux !
So every time I synchronize those files, WinSCP keep thinking he have to upload them :p

Suggestion:
1- Make WinSCP update modification time of symbolic linked files when he upload their content
2- Add one option to the sync box to ignore symbolic linked files

Best regards,
