Symlink to homes


I have my linux partion mounted on /linux. I have a symlink in the root on 
the hurd partion to ./linux/home called home. When I log in as myself I get 
an error saying:
shell-init: could not get current directory
Going echo 'pwd' gives:
pwd: could not get current directory: Permission denied.
I can however go:
cd /home/jhunt/ and then everything works fine.

Replacing the symlink to home with a directory and an and an empty home 
directory eliminates the error. What am I doing wrong?
