      Description


      I was dorking around with JFileChooser on XP to test another bug.

      I was extremely surprised to find that JFileChooser on Windows
      does not seem to follow Windows links. if you click on a foo.lnk
      file, it tries to open the file, rather than treating it as a directory
      and following the link. Ouch!

      If we're trying to emulate the behavior that people expect from
      the Windows file chooser then this kind of behavioral adhernce is
      even more important than getting the pixxels right!
