[DSE-Dev] Bug#665963: setools: indexcon freezes when traversing a broken symlink

Package: setools
Version: 3.3.6.ds-7.2+b1
Severity: normal

To reproduce:

mkdir blah
(cd /blah ; ln -s /does/not/exist)
strace -f -F indexcon /tmp/blah.files -d /blah

Note that it freezes at the ENOENT response of not being able
to follow the symlink
