Seems that with suse91 I can't have symlinks out of /emul/linux eg I cannot
have /emul/linux/tmp -> /tmp or /emul/linux/home -> /data/home

I don't have older NetBSD or linux emul/libs state around so I can't tell
if this did work properly before.

I've noticed this testing a local install of OpenOffice 1.1.4 and some
other linux binaries.

A guess would be that a stat() call doesn't quite return whats
expected, and it refuses to walk the symlink. 

Anybody else seeing this?
