Hi Roberto,

the current wording is actually correct.  (You can create a broken
symlink yourself to check).

The purpose of `lexists` is to find out if "something" exists at the
path without following symlinks, so it is not necessary for the symlink
to point at something that exists.

cheers,
Georg
