Restarts should have hard link to executable

Restarts should contain a copy of the executable, so that they are self-contained. This "copy" should be implemented via a hard link if possible (to save space).

    As far as I know, this has been the case for a long time, so I am closing the ticket. Feel free to reopen if this is not the case.

    No, this is not the case. Simulations contain the executable, but restarts use the simulation's executable, they don't have their own hard link. This poses a problem if someone wants to change the executable "under the hood"; since this change then influences the whole simulations, there is then no way to recover the executable used for a particular restart.
