Windows Subsystem for Linux softlinks directory loop

Window Build ≥ 14393 has fixed this issue.


Before Windows Build 14393, softlinks in WSL looped endlessly, whether making a softlink from WSL to the main Windows C: drive or within WSL.

Former (now fixed) example from WSL:

ln -s ~/Users .
cd Users
cd Users
cd Users
cd asdfasdfffas (a non-existent directory)
pwd
$HOME/Users/Users/Users/asdfasdffffas
