mirror and symlinks


I just played around with mirror, and found the following:

In the dirstructure I'm replicating are some dirs that are very large, 
and I will not be able to get it all on one filesystem, so I have created 
for two dirs two symlinks to another filesystem. But, everytime I start 
to mirror, those two dirs are fetched completely. I suspect it has 
something to do with those symlinks and mirror thinking it's different, 
cos on the remote system these are just plain dirs.

Is there a solution/flag/option to change this behaviour?
