Symbolic Links on Deployment server

Hey all.

I am using PhpStorm 10.0.2 against Deployment Server. I develop extensions in Joomla and to make a long story short, a component in Joomla has 2 different locations due to the architecture in Joomla.

I am using git, so I concluded that the only way to keep a consistent git history for a component, was to symlink the component into 1 directory to share the git-history.

But everytime I try to synchronize it tells me that it does not support recursive links.

I cannot say if it is the "remote"-connection that causes the problem or if the IDE itself does not support symlinks, but it does not work :(

Is it me that is doing something wrong or perhaps missing a settings?

If only Joomla had a different architecture regarding components, this would not be a problem. But this is how it is :(

Thanks for helping out guys. And happy new year. :)
