      Description

      We are running on Ubuntu and our environment is as follows:

      ./pom.xml (is a symbolic link to /baseline/pom.xml)
      ./module/pom.xml (is a symbolic link to /baseline/module/pom.xml)

      If you go into the module directory and run a compile (mvn compile), everything works fine.

      If you try to run a compile from the parent pom, maven does not resolve the basedir correctly when it tries to compile the module. It tries to create the target directory in /baseline/module/target, rather than in the local module directory.

      Everything works as expected in release 2.0.6. Something changed with the symbolic link resolution in 2.0.7 that breaks my builds.
