When trying to save an attachment to a shortcut to a folder, thunderbird tries
to overwrite the shortcut (.lnk) file instead of opening the folder the shortcut
points to.
This seems to be a bug in Thunderbird 1.0.2. It is not an issue with Thunderbird
1.0.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Right click the attached file in Thunderbird, choose "Save as"
2.Browse to a folder shortcut on the desktop

Actual Results:  
Folder will not open
You are asked if you want to overwrite the shortcut file

Expected Results:  
Folder should open like a normal folder
