You didn't answer my question.. I explained why it was a bug.
You didn't explain why it is copying links.
Don't put it on me to reproduce w/o cygwin... the program's
isn't behaving as documented.
If you think it is the cause of cygwin...
I asked you to explain why.
The fact that there is no behavior in cygwin that would activate forced
link coping doesn't seem to bother you.

I did too read your report, but I stand by my position that upstream cp
is doing the right things for a case-sensitive system,
Whether or not "cp" tries to duplicate links on the local system
has NOTHING to do with case sensitivity...
It is an explicit 'cp' option "--preserve=links" (turned on with
-a or -d -- neither of which I used in the 2nd and 3rd examples)...
