I would bet that /dev/dvd is on a different filesystem than the repository,
and /etc/hosts is not.  Not that that explains/solves your problem; I'm
just speculating on what the difference might be.  Git has no problem with
symlinks in a more traditionally laid-out repository, so I doubt it's that.

This is beyond the scope of git-users.  Wonkyness like this should be
discussed on the Git developers mailing list: g...@vger.kernel.org
