1.7 (an previous) ln bug

Using winsymlinks, it seems that if you create a symbolic link to a
non-existent file, the POSIX target gets set, but the Windows target
does not.  The cygpath command will return a valid Windows path for the
non-existent file, so that should be used for the Windows target value.
It doesn't make sense that the ln would only work partially.  Thanks!

Dave
