I'd say a path containing symlinks is just as "actual" as any other,
and I'd rather see this fixed than not.  But if not, I can live with
that - I know why the test fails, I know it isn't a real problem, and
I can work around it - but others might be confused, and more
importantly, it seems this also causes all further tests to be
skipped, which might hide a real problem.  Shouldn't the rest of the
tests be performed regardless of whether this test fails?
