I don't know that we've ever tested the commit hook with a link.
Maybe there is some other problem.

Have you tried running reindent on the actual file (not the symlink)?

Can you check in a smaller part of the change (like leaving out the

You can send me the file if you want.  I can try to look at it and see
if there are any problems.
