There was no change at all in symlink handling so this is a bit
surprising.  And in general, symlink handling still works as before.
For testing I copied all ~/.vim* files to ~/porting.apps/vim/ and
created symlinks to them.  Still works nicely.

Can you provide two strace, one with 1.7.32, and one with the snapshot?
Also, can you provide something really simple which I can use in place
of an init.el.cygwin file?  And then, how do I know it has been picked
up or not?
