Freebsd 10 behaviour:
root@ns2:/etc # ln -s /usr/local/etc/namedb /etc/namedb
root@ns2:/etc # cd namedb
root@ns2:/etc/namedb # cd ..
root@ns2:/usr/local/etc #

Rationale for this behaviour.
In freebsd 8.3 when you go to the parent directory inside of linked directory it goes to the parent of the linked file.
For freebsd 10 this is not true?

New behaviour is POSIX, other is BASH from Linux, not even FreeBSD's (pdk)sh
