I don't see any other way of fixing this -- force all paths to be canonical.
But I would expect that this call is not cheap, asking the underlying FS for canonical path.
And since 99% of users are not using symlinks (at least that's what I would expect), making this force optional makes sense.

I don't get this.
Unfortunately I think the problem is even bigger than just VFS::getChild.
My guess is that even calls to VirtualFile::getChild are due to fail with symlinked path?
