Does the target file actually exist when the symlink is synced?
Maybe something (p4v?) is trying to do you a "favor" by giving
you the target file when it can't actually establish the link.
(You said they did appear as links when resynced later, right?)

If that's the problem, then changing the order in which things
are synced would solve it.
