    Did you check out the behavior under other filesystems and
    kernel versions?

    This is almost certainly a feature of your shell, and has
    nothing to do with the filesystem. If you're using tcsh,
    check the 'symlinks' variable. If you're using bash, look
    at 'nolinks' and '-P'. With zsh, examine 'CHASE_LINKS'.
