The shell's concept of a logical view of the file system (the default, as specified by POSIX) is maintained by `cd' and communicated to other processes via $PWD. Other processes may or may not choose to use that information. There are environments where support for $PWD is pervasive.
Ah, that makes sense. I suppose it's too much trouble to try to get coreutils to use logical paths, but I'll take a stab at a bug report there.
I assume my original bug is still open, though? One solution would be to be able to specify logical vs physical pathnames in programmable completion.
