 From Data::Stag 0.10.  I've bumped the required version to 0.11 to  
get rid of these (should upgrade your local installation).

That's a diagnostic response, it's probably best to change that to a  
TODO (fixed now).

File this as a bug.  The check should make sure the others are not  
soft links.  Won't be fixed in time for 1.6, though, but I remember  
this popping up sporadically elsewhere.

This one has been discussed before and is a bug within SVG::Graph.
