Through warning when user tries to backup a symlinked directory

Registered by karlrt on 2013-12-19

Some users have symlinks in their data / home directory. When backing them up using rsync and the default options in backintime, those are not dereferenced and only the symlinks are backed up, not their content. This behaviour should at least be explained or, when choosing a symlink as primary folder, this folder should be simply dereferenced before the rsync usage!
