think I'll miss it. But rmvlnk '/test' will be fine?

As long as the symbolic link exists, /test will redirect requests to /QSYS.LIB. So the following two commands are identical:

rmvlnk '/test/cmdwnt.menu'
rmvlnk '/QSYS.LIB/cmdwnt.menu'

They are the same, because /test will be redirected to /QSYS.LIB, anyway... you're referring to the same object in either case.

HOWEVER, if you do this:

rmvlnk '/test'

It should refer to the symbolic link itself. And delete it.

Also, rmvlnk won't remove a directory or library if there's any objects in it... so even if I'm wrong (I'm not... but even if I was) it wouldn't delete QSYS, since it's not empty.
