Meld copy link file from right to left, but the left side store a source file (not link file)
[Precondition] There are two code base there. User try to compare them and fix the difference. Let 'left' represents code-base-1, 'right' represents code-base-2. There is a link file in code-base-2, and we want to copy it to code-base-1.
[Version & OS] This issue happens at: Meld 1.8.4 & Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS Meld 3.18.0 & Ubuntu 18.04.2
[Issue] With Meld, copying link file from right to left get a unexpected result that code-base-1 will store a real file from code-base-2. Link file becomes a real text file, which causes that if the origin file changed, the link file never updated.
