Actually, with the default ftpd turned on in inetd, a link in the user's home 
directory(chown'd to that user) showed up just fine when I logged into ftp as 
that user, and also allowed me to get to the appropriate directory without 
attempting to navigate the directory tree.

I would try, then, running chown on the symlink in question.
