That's how I originally had it.  Unfortunately, test ltp/symlink01 
relies on the test directory being specified as a canonicalized pathname 
(i.e. is the same after realpath()).

Since there's no /etc/fstab in the the filesystem relative to the test 
DLL, I think it should always be using the default cygdrive prefix?
