--- Comment #2 from Adalbert.Hanssen at gmx.de ---
Alexxcons, what particular purpose do you have in mind where the current
behaviour is more desirable (i.e. show the sequence of links used to reach a
particular branch) than the other one: return the "natural" path from the root
of the file system - and - if there is more than one: the shortest one?
The "natural" path however is only unique as long as yyou don't mount a
particular branch in some other position. The UIC path of all involved files
would change too, if you move it or a part of the subtree in which a file is to
some other position in the file tree. I consider mounting a subtree more to be
like moving it to some other place, except that "the old" connection in case of
mount is not cut as it is the case of moving a branch somewhere else.
