If ATI is the junction (reparse point, or however you call it) to a top-level
directory on another partition, this behavior could be explained by "exiting
through the window": process enter the partition from the doors (junction),
dig it, then trying to exit from real path, which is, indeed, at the root of
partition. So the process finds itself at the top-level and gracefully dies
considering work done.
A wild guess, however.
