Description

When a symbolic link isn't owned by the same user as its tagrget, cfengine stops processing file promises.
This can stop an attack on code where there is a race condition, but in practice, ther should not be race conditions and there is a lot of legitimate systems with links that don't have the same owner as their target.
We should disable this behavior
