Re: setup/symlinks/gcc/chown question

Hi All...

If I reinstall gcc/mingw (c++ and core four packages total) and then do

ls /lib/gcc/i686-pc-mingw32/3.4.4

I see the links correctly interpreted as links (ls shows them with name -> name), but after I do chown -h on one of the links, ls shows it as name.lnk (and this corresponds to gcc -mno-cygwin... giving me an error that it an't fine cc1.exe).

If I delete and create the link myself (ln -s ../../i686-pc-cygwin/3.4.4.cc1.exe), then all is well and chown -h (or -R) does not break it.

I can't see any problem.  What does that mean "it breaks the symlinks"?
How do they look before, how afterwards?
