Mac OS X 10.5.2 did not completely fix stacks

Apple's newest update to Leopard, 10.5.2, has greatly improved the new Stack feature by adding a hierarchical list view, but it is still not as functional as the list view in Tiger. As I noted before, I created my own directory that has a collection of aliases (symbolic links) to the applications I use most frequently, as well as links to Applications, Utilities, and the LocalApps directory where I install third-party applications. The problem is even with the 10.5.2 update, the list view does not follow the symbolic links, so my folder of links is basically useless.

I'm still pleased with the list view - it is a huge improvement, but I won't be totally satisfied until it follows links.
