Excellent! If I recall correctly, that works because we resolve the symlink when looking for the standard library, but not when looking for venv configuration file.

I also suspect this is all thoroughly broken on Windows - there are so many configuration operations and platform specific considerations that need to be accounted for in getpath.c these days that it has become close to incomprehensible :(

One of my main goals with PEP 432 is actually to make it possible to rewrite the path configuration code in a more maintainable way - my unofficial subtitle for that PEP is "getpath.c must die!" :)
