I'm not sure that this actually makes the problem go away.  I know that
Vista has symlinks, but have they replaced the old shortcuts, or are
they just an additional feature.  If the latter, we may still want to
support following shortcuts.  That would be especially true if making
shortcuts is supported by the windows graphical shell and symlinks aren't.
