This bug occurs in the demo as well, but it depends on what the symlink is
pointing to:

If the symlink target is something under $HOME/.wine/drive_c, then
NtQueryDirectoryFile will resolve the symlink correctly.
If the target something outside of drive_c, i.e. $HOME, then it fails.

Using winecfg to add a mapping a drive letter to the target directory also lets
it resolve correctly, however, mapping a drive letter to any directory that
encompasses the target directory (i.e. Z: => /) does not resolve the symlink.
