I can confirm the OP. However, deleting a valid symbolic link in the file browser works for me on Debian.

Addition: Also valid symlinks cannot be deleted by the GUI filebrowser.

If a folder contains a broken symlink, the link is not shown in the GUI file browser, the directory seems empty. But trying to delete the folder fails quietly without showing any error.
