too many level of symbolic links

I have a network drive mapped like
//hostname/share --> p:

When trying to access the network drive via cygwin I get:

$ ls /cygdrive/p
ls: cannot open directory '/cygdrive/p': Too many levels of symbolic links

Accessing the network share directly via //hostname/share works as normal.

I have been using cygwin a long time but this is the first time this happens. My machine and our servers got recently updated, so I can't really pinpoint the reason for this behaviour now.

Any hints / advice how to resolve this?

Cheers, Andreas
