Filename filter working symbolic links

How are symbolic links handled in recursive folder copy with filename filter?
It seems that FileZilla first check if a link is pointing to a file or to a directory before copying it.
However, the filename filter seems to fail on these links from time to time.
Some files pointed by the links but not matching the filter still get downloaded.
I can't see a systematic behavior (repeatable though) that what files would leak through and what files would be filtered out.

Can someone explain or suggest a way to test the filename filter with symbolic links?

Thanks a lot.
