When copying files to Google Drive, getting spurious "Can't follow symlink" errors

I’m using rclone 1.37 on Ubuntu 16.04. When I copy files to my Google Drive folder, rclone throws the following error multiple times, even though the copy works just fine:

017/08/19 01:59:53 NOTICE: MySymlinkedFolder: Can't follow symlink without -L/--copy-links

It occurs once per symlink in the directory in which the file being copied is located, even though I’m not copying these folders.

The command I’m using is:

rclone copy file.pdf gdrive-bucked:basedir

Any help would be appreciated.

This is because the directory is filtered at a higher layer than which gives the symlink warnings.

I’m not entirely sure how to fix this at the moment though!

Can you please make a new issue on github so I don’t forget.
