This whole thread makes little sense to me.

A windows shortcut file is _not_ the equivalent of a UNIX symlink.

It's meant so that Explorer can store meta-data about file location,
icons and other things.

If you ask MS Word to access c:\Some.lnk\file.doc, I'm 99% sure it
will fail.  Perl should do the same.
