bug with ln command on Debian

The ln command has the following bugs :

BUG 1. The directories mydir/subdir and tmp exist
ln -sf mydir/subdir --target-directory=tempdir

The response is cannot overwrite tempdir
What is expected is a symbolic link tempdir/subdir -> ../mydir/subdir

BUG 2. The symblink mylink exist and you try to force writing on it:

eg: mylink -> anywhere

ln –sf mydir/mylink
mylink -> mydir/mylink

ln –sf mydir/subdir mylink
does not work, still:
mylink -> anywhere
