Bug 81 – Optionally keep symbolic link name in path instead of resolving it with SFTP protocol

With SFTP, when directory is "entered", WinSCP asks server to normalize the path. Typical servers normalize the symbolic lings into real path. WinSCP may optionally ignore the normalization.

Internally implemented as part of Bug 1933, and as such it can be enabled using raw site settings SFTPRealPath=off since 5.19.
Now it can also be configured in the GUI.
