Created an attachment (id=5991)
 --> (http://bugs.winehq.org/attachment.cgi?id=5991&action=view)
a better test

This time using existing env. variable.

This test does show that we do have a problem with the way our symlinks
configured to point into $HOME.
Should we disable this feature of NtQueryDirectoryFile? Or should we get rid of
the symlinks pointing to $HOME? However that won't fix it for existing
configurations (which we don't really care too much). Except this won't prevent
users from setting something like this and braking Wine.

I remember there was a huge discussion about this and it was decided that
symlinks would be the best solution. Apparently they are not. Quite opposite -
they do not work.
