Cygwin and symlink

I remember that some time ago (don't when, sigh!) if I had

$ ln -sf foo.pdf slnk_foo.pdf

I was able to read 'slnk_foo.pdf' double clicking on its icon from 
Explorer or 'Computer Resources'. Now AR complains and I can't read it.

Is this to be expected?

BTW, I remember also that the icon of 'slnk_foo.pdf' had the symbol of a 
link (like an 'arrow'), now it is as other PDF files icon.

When there was the 'transmutation'?  :-)

Thanks,
Angelo.
