Package: salt-minion
Version: 0.16.4-2~bpo70+1
Severity: important

salt-call throws up an error when it encounters a dangling
symlink. The bug was fixed upstream:


$ sudo salt-call -l quiet --local file.find /tmp type=d
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/salt-call", line 11, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/salt/scripts.py", line 76, in salt_call
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/salt/cli/__init__.py", line 265, in run
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/salt/cli/caller.py", line 132, in run
    ret = self.call()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/salt/cli/caller.py", line 73, in call
    ret['return'] = func(*args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/salt/modules/file.py", line 480, in find
    ret = [p for p in finder.find(path)]
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/salt/utils/find.py", line 555, in find
    fstat = os.stat(fullpath)
OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/tmp/link'

Please include the fix in the deb.
