I will submit a bug report to Microsoft about this issue. As a workaround,
things seem to work OK if you just make the symbolic link to
\\server\rootshare. So, if you create shares on the "server" computer for
the folders you need to access, and then link to those shares directly
instead of through other shares, it should work.
