A new message was posted in the thread "VFS3 and symlinks":

One option could be to simply "punt", as the Perl guys say, and wait for Java 7 to solve this, which contains a much-improved filesystem API.  This would open up a lot of options, like being able to possibly install VFS as the "real" file handler, or at the very least, be able to identify and read symlinks so as to avoid the problem that way without the expensive canonicalization of every file name.
Just a thought
