Bug Description

It's obvious that creating a hard link from another file system doesn't work. I tried it anyway in a semblance of anawarness. Unfortunately UT crashed.

I plugged in my external hard drive which is ext4 formated and tried to create a hard link to my home directory which is located locally. That was done with ubuntu 11.04.

Sorry. To be more precise:
1. Plugged in my hd
2. chosen a file
3. used UT's script component to create a hard link to a dir located in my home dir.
4. crash

OK. Thanks for your report.

The hardlink script could not create script cross device, I should add device check in the script.
