OK, I wasn't able to reproduce this with the following:

lhall@lhall->cd /tmp
lhall@lhall->mkdir test
lhall@lhall->cd test
lhall@lhall->mkdir foo
lhall@lhall->cd foo
lhall@lhall->mkdir backup
lhall@lhall->touch backup/bar backup/baz
lhall@lhall->cd ..
lhall@lhall->ln -s /cygdrive/i linuxshare
lhall@lhall->ls -l
total 0
drwxrwxrwx+   3 lhall    Domain U        0 Apr  9 17:07 foo/
lrwxrwxrwx    1 lhall    Domain U       22 Apr  9 17:09 linuxshare ->
lhall@lhall->cd foo
lhall@lhall->mv backup/ ../linuxshare
lhall@lhall->ls ../linuxshare/backup/
bar  baz

So maybe VMWare is significant but I don't have a Linux version to try it
with.  Or maybe you and I are really doing things differently.  Does the
above work for you?  If not, send the output of your run to the list.
Also *attach* the output of 'cygcheck -s -r -v'.
