CHGRP and CHOWN inconsistancy

mkdir src
ln -s src srctest

chown me srctest
chgrp me srctest

The chown effects the link (srctest) but the chgrp effects the actual
directory (src).  This seems inconsistant to me.  I have no aliases
setup for either, I'm running Debian Woody, fileutils version 4.1-2,
with version 4.1 or both chgrp and chown.  

Surely the default for each should be the same?
