Hmm. I am having second thoughts on this one, as on Windows we rely
on GetFileInformationByHandle() for the emulation of stat() in
win32stat.c, and it looks like this returns some information about the
junction point and not the directory or file this is pointing to, it
seems. At the end, it looks better to keep things simple here, so
let's drop it.
