Default Missing 'TrackIR Gunner' profile due to hard links

Hi,

For both the UH-1H and the Mi-8 there should be four different profiles available in the Controls settings:
'Game'
'Gunner'
'Sim'
'TrackIR Gunner'
But for the Huey the 'TrackIR Gunner' is missing if both aircrafts are installed.
The reason is that the file 'name.lua' in 'Mods\aircraft\Uh-1H\Input\UH-1H_TrackIR_Gunner' are hard linked to the same file in 'Mods\aircraft\Mi-8MTV2\Input\Mi-8MTV2_TrackIR_Gunner'. So both files have identical information (technically they are the same file).
Removing the Huey 'name.lua', emptying the trashcan (Windows 7), and creating a new file with the same name but with the correct information (return _('UH-1H TrackIR Gunner')) solves the problem.

This problem has been present a while. It exist in my DCS 1.5.7.

I have confirmed this to not being only in my install by asking about it here and here.
