Details

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8.0.1) Gecko/20060111 Firefox/1.5.0.1
Build Identifier: version 1.5 (20051201)

When I drag and drop a windows shortcut file (.lnk) to the compose window to attach the file, the shortcut itself is attached, not the real file.
If I try to attach the shortcut using File->Attach->File(s), the real file is attached.
I think the latter behaviour is more useful and that drag and drop should behave like opening using the file chooser.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Drag and drop Windows shortcut file (.lnk) to compose window in order to attach.

Actual Results:  
Useless shortcut file (.lnk) is attached.

Expected Results:  
Real file should be attached.
Version: unspecified → 1.5
