/tmp beeing a symlink breaks mount

Bug Description

Having / and /home as separate partitions, doing this breaks mounting of usb sticks in the client:

mv /tmp /home/
ln -s /home/tmp /tmp

This worked in earlier versions (for example in Debian Lenny, Ubuntu 8.xx) but not anymore in Debian Squeeze and newer Ubuntus. The binding to /media is the part that fails. The stick is still mounted under /home/tmp/.username/stick.

This shouldn't be an issue with ltspfs 1.4, as it doesn't do /tmp mounts anymore.

Changed in ltsp:
importance: Undecided → Low
status: New → Fix Released
