Ticket #6074 (new defect)
Permission denied to access shared folders on Windows when folder contains broken symbolic link

For some reason, Windows prevented me to access a shared folder by telling me I need administraor privileges to access it (while I have them). I noticed that I have some broken symbolic links on the ext4 filesystem of that folder. After removing them, access to the folder was granted by Windows guest os.
