That's weird. Can you reliably test its status? (That would return LinkStatus.LINK_MISSING, I guess.)
You could report it as a bug.
It's really weird indeed because it consistently returns name, status and date (even though the date is different to the one you get in Finder or Quark but that's another story) the only missing element is file path and that's only valid if the last known location for the link is on a server that is not mounted at the time you're checking the document.
I wanted to check if anyone else has experienced the same thing and if there's a solution. Perhaps it's a genuine bug as you suggested.
Given the problems CS4 (assuming that's the version you have) has with links right now, it would not surprise me 1 bit if this is a bug. If you can replicate it across several computers, I would report it as a bug asap. I know they are working on various aspects of links as we speak. The sooner you can put it on the radar the sooner it can get fixed.
BTW are you using 6.04 or 6.03 or lower?
It's CS4 Indeed and I've updated to 6.0.4
It's also consistently doing it across multiple MAC laptops and desktops - old and new.
Thanks for your input. I'll report it in.
