Greetings Farid.

The reason the filebuf test succeeds in nightly testing is an artifact
of the build process.  The sources are synced down on a linux system,
and then compressed using the jar utility.  This compressed archive is
then expanded by the nightly testing system when a build is performed.
Somewhere during this process, the symlink (on unix) is turned into a
real file, containing the expected input.
