win junctions no longer symlinks? When did that happen?




OMG!  When were junctions changed to no longer behave like symlinks?

I wanted that for years because it was apparent to me that MS
intended them to function more as mount-points than symlinks and
event referred to them as mountpoints in some of their earlier
literature on them.

Anyway -- outstanding!   At the time, there was no
'bind' option in fstab so that wasn't available either...cool!
