Our mirror rsync process is complaining about the following bad soft link
file that exists on the CentOS mirror servers since 4.7 was released:

chown: cannot dereference `/u/mirrors/pub/linux/centos/4.6/4.7': Too many levels 
of symbolic links

The actual file is a soft link pointing onto itself:

# cd /u/mirrors/pub/linux/centos/4.6/
# ls -l 4.7
lrwxrwxrwx  1 tomcat dcsc 3 Sep 17 18:05 4.7 -> 4.7

PLEASE remove this file on the top level mirror servers !
