JFileChooser does not support MS Windows shortcuts. Unlike the standard Windows
file choosers, it does not allow the user to follow Windows shortcuts while
browsing the file system.
(I think that shortcuts are a disgusting hack and really wish Windows had
symlinks, but since shortcuts are what it has and since native apps support
them, I think it is a bug for Swing not to do so as well. You might consider
this an RFE, but based on how I expect that most people react to the current
behavior, I think it's a bug.)
