By the way, "we're not going to do anything about this" is a perfectly fine answer. If so, I can just exclude that one test when I run the test suite on a Windows XP machine.

Subject: CDash php "symlink()" usage does not work when running on Windows XP
<b>Fatal error</b>: Call to undefined function symlink() in <b>C:\dev\My Tests\CDash-trunk\xml_handlers\upload_handler.php</b> on line <b>305</b><br />
shows up here (from a Windows XP machine):
Given that symlink will never be supported via php on Windows XP...
What should we do about this test failure? (I think it's a real problem in the code on Windows XP.)
Is there a way to make the upload_handler work without using symlinks?
Isn't the symlink a "nicety" and not absolutely required for downloading a file that's been uploaded...?
