Bug in "ln -d"

There seems to be a problem with making a hard link to a directory, the man page says that it should be possible, but it's not.

When I try with "ln -d /old /new" I get:-
"ln: creating hard link `/new' to `/old': Operation not permitted"
This is as root, and regardless of where in the filesytem the target and link are.

I've tried on 4.0 on a redhat machine and 4.1 on debian sid - with identical results.
