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.

Please do not close this bug... EB doesn't know what he is talking

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)...
