I was trying to find all symlinks under a specific folder to do this i used:-
find /bar/foo/ -type l
This works fine on the most part and produced expected results appart from one of the results returned was very odd...output something like...
Get the meaning?? everything was returning from inside /bar/foo as i would expect apart from this one line which appears to have come from somewhere completely different and i've not been able to even find the location yet as there is no such place as:-
As in not possible to go "cd /nothing/to/do/......"
If possible, please copy paste the actual command and the actual results. As you describe it, it looks weird, but maybe you are missing something that a fresh pair of eyes can spot, given the original data.

It would fail with some weird error....anyway sorted now thanks for the info
