Follow-up Comment #42, bug #62847 (project octave):

The mapped drive itself isn't treated as a symbolic link.
But there is a symbolic link in the path that you feed to `addpath` (which in
turn is passed to `canonicalize_file_name`).
Afaict, that symbolic is `Q:\full`. (I.e., what you described as "a shortcut -
apparently to '\\<server>\company.local\full$'".)
*That* symbolic link is resolved by `canonicalize_file_name`. *Not* the mapped
network drive letter itself.
