mc, ftpfs wrong progress calculation of symlink with "[x] follow symlink" opt


I will try to explain how to reconstruct situation:

then we select openoffice-*.tbz (if bigger file, than easy to see problem)
as you can see all files in ftp://ftp.../editors/ are symlinks, which
are very small, but OOo is big. Then we start copying it, but _with_
"follow symlink" option in copy dialog. "File" progress bar compute "%"
okey, but "Bytes" are calculated from symlinks, I think that is wrong
because it show in few seconds tha total proces is at 100% done, but
thats not true.
