tar 1.25 fail to handle symliks correctly
Thu Jul 14 09:54:00 GMT 2011
I know tar version 1.25 sporadically fail to untar symlinks under cygwin.
I switch to an older tar version (1.23) and everything is working perfectly.
Since this is a critical bug (tar is practically unusable) - I think you
should consider switch to an older tar version in the default cygwin
