[Interest] QFile and file shortcuts on Windows.

My app uses Qfile:

QFile in_file(file_to_read);
if( in_file.open(QIODevice::ReadOnly|QIODevice::Text) ) {

On windows this fails (for me) for files which are actually Windows shortcuts to the real file.
Is that a bug or am I supposed to the provide special code for shortcut detection and processing.
I am using Qt 5.9.1 (forgive me).
