I noticed that the pseudo-install created this symbolic link

Sandbox -> /var/www/foswikidev/DirectedGraphPlugin/pub/Sandbox

I can why

I have installed this extension with pseudo-install and it has a Sandbox topic with attachments

So pseudo creates the link. This however screws up anything else you do with attachments in the Sandbox. The attachments land in the DirectedGraphPlugin instead of the Core.

I think it would be smart of it either created a Sandbox directory in core/data

This is a developer only issue and it is easily fixed by creating a Sandbox directory in Pub.

I just thought I would report it. I fell in the trap and filled stuff in the wrong place

This is fixed under Item10860 - it added a README to the pub/Sandbox directory so that it always exists on a git checkout.
