That's actually an issue with the NetApp support in Cygwin.  NetApp
produces unstable inode numbers and therefore Cygwin fakes stable inode
numbers by doing some hashing.  While that removes problems like the
inode changing underneath a cp in progress, it necessarily makes all
link counts 1.  The hard links themselves are fine, you can write to any
of the linked files and the contents shows up in the others, but you
don't get to see how many files are linked.
