Problem with copy / links

I have a little Problem (or badunderstanding?) with copying from remote.
I have the following situation:

On the client, I have the file /tmp/foo, and the symlink /tmp/bar, which
points to /tmp/foo.

On the serverhost, i have a file /tmp/bar.

Now i run the following program on the client:

        actionsequence = ( copy )
        domain = ( )
        /tmp dest=/tmp server=serverhost recurse=inf type=checksum

I expected the link /tmp/bar to be gone, and /tmp/bar beeing a file with
the same content as it had on the serverhost. But instead, the link is
still there, pointing to /tmp/foo ... It has simply not been touched.

What am I doing wrong here?

Thank you,
