Known problem. Cygwin takes a shortcut and treats name/.. as
though it were a single ., which unfortunately is counter to posix
when name was a symlink. The problem is that patching cygwin
is likely to slow down the common case, so the cygwin developers
have chosen speed over correctness for the moment on this issue.
