Topic "Symbolic links on directories"

I login to a remote host with SSH. The remote host has symbolic links on directories, such as:
/home/ac/backups/ -> /home/backups/today/
With WinSCP, when I go to /home/ac/backups/, I am redirected to /home/backups/today/. That is, WinSCP changes directory instead of just going to /home/ac/backups/ and having the OS do the redirection. Then, when I press the Up button, I am in /home/backups/ instead of /home/ac/, which is very annoying.

I didn't find any configuration option to change this behavior (disabling the "resolve symlinks" option does nothing). Is it possible to have WinSCP just go to the symlinked directory, instead of doing the redirection itself ?

Thanks,

AC

WinSCP goes where SFTP servers instructs it to go. So it is feature of the server not of WinSCP.
