/sbin/restore behavior

While trying to recover from my recent attempts to upgrade, I have noticed that '/sbin/restore -x -u' doesn't seem to work as expected.

I would expect the -u to unlink both the files _and_hard_links_ being restored. However, when restoring a hard link, it does not unlink the original, and displays an error message instead.

Is this behavior correct?
