      Description

      If a file in the workspace is a symlink whose target path isn't retrievable (say its absolute and isn't completely contained (relatively) in the workspace, then the task scanner plugin dies.

      Suggest Tasks Plugin just log something non fatal to console and continue in such circumstances.
