[BUG] Not following symlinks by default

I've spent many frustrating hours cornering this bug.  Here's a short
testcase to reproduce it:


  cd /tmp
  rm -rf z b
  mkdir z z/a z/b
  echo ha >z/a/file
  ln -s z/b
  cd b
  cat ../a/file
  emacs -Q ../a/file # buffer-file-name = /tmp/a/file

Why doesn't emacs behave like cat or vim?  Isn't this behavior a bad default?
