When I use VMware Fusion with an Ubuntu guest (it worked long ago, but this problem has existed over several generations of ubuntu, at least including natty, oneiric and precise) and shared folders using vmhgfs, no matter what I do, many of my symlinks are broken.
The ones that are broken are symlinks that point to files in subdirectories, such as foo -> bar/blah. They're broken because they're presented to linux as foo->bar.
Anyone have any idea what's going wrong? This has, in the past worked for me, but it just doesn't now. It seems like a bug in vmhgfs.
Please don't suggest using NFS, SMB, etc. I'm specifically interested in getting HGFS working.
