When reporting please show us the details.  Because we have heard this
before!  :-)  Everyone expects to see that the files are linked until
proven otherwise.

For this please run this command and show the information for those

  ls -ldi path1/x path2/y

The first field is the inode number produced due to the inclusion of
the -i option.  If the number is the same number on both files then
the file is hard linked.  (Assuming both files are on the same file
system.)  Otherwise if one is a symlink then that will also be shown.
