bug with Cygwin - "ls .." within a link (directory)

Here is a bug with cygwin: "r" is a link to "/cygdrive/c/robertbody" and 
when I go into the link named "r" and I do "ls .." it is incorrect, and 
inconsistent with "cd ..; ls",
because in fact Cygwin is mishandling the link...... inconsistently with any 

On another note,
I reported a bug with "type ahead" while running a script (within a script 
within a script), and nobody wrote that they will take action, or to confirm 
it, so i wrote to Corinna directly, because it doesn't look like all the bug 
reports are properly addressed.
