Good, then we can determinate that this is a symlink error, it seams
that readlink() isn't implemented in the msysgit version of msysgit.

However msysgit should have a implementation of readlink() according to:
http://mingw.5.n7.nabble.com/Replacement-for-readlink-td30679.html

I've CC:ed the msysgit-maillist so that they can decide if this is
something they want to address in newer releases.

(In the git source code the readlink call in this abspath.c)
