Just tried this with 10.7.1 on my laptop. I created a directory in /tmp; sym-linked it to another in /tmp; created a file in TextEdit; and then saved it to the sym-linked directory w/o a problem.
What version of 10.7? What does "ls -ld" show for dir_orig and dir_link?
Is "word" (I assume that's the app you used) "fully 10.7-aware" [whatever that may mean]? Have you tried it with TextEdit? Any other apps?
