#1661 closed defect (duplicate)

the transcodes does not deal with symlinks properly

If you try to transcode a recording that's really a symlink to another directory, it replaces the symink with the transcoded file, and leaves the original "lost" on the other directory. This patch dereferences the symlink so the new file is in the same directory as the original, and so the replacement works properly, and also fixes the symlink when the file gets renamed.

Doesn't apply to current SVN since I moved a lot of the logic from jobqueue.cpp to inside mythtranscode. I'm also going to use another version of this patch in #1747 which honors the DeletesFollowLinks? setting so I'm closing this ticket.
