problem moving linked objects

I seam to be having a problem moving linked objects Ican append an object and move it about ect but if i link it it just sits there not bean able to select and move it or anything… In the outliner the select, see, render icons are all dimmed out what am I doing wrong? Could this be a bug? please advise…

this is intentional, linked objects location is stored in an external file, hence, you cant move it (since it wouldnt be saved anyway).

typically you either want to link in mesh data and use with a local object or a group and instance the group with an empty.
