It's a bug in Netapp which you won't be able to workaround in Cygwin.
Netapp inode numbers are unstable.  This is non-trivial.  Hardlinks
with different inode numbers will be a major PITA.

Unless, of course, this has been fixed.  But then again there's no way
for Cygwin to know whether it's acessing a fixed Netapp or an older
non-fixed one.
