Backup should not follow symlinks

Before upgrading from to early access 2.1, I wanted to do a backup, but it failed, with lack of space on my sd-card. The log file showed that it tried to backup some videos from my sdcard to the sdcard. That's obviously (or is it?) a bad move.

That's because I made symlinks in my $HOME/Videos folder to several folders on my sd-card. It enables me to access videos on my sd-card more easily.

I think Backup should not follow symlinks. What do you think?
