Problem: Removing of a Job also removes content of a junction referenced data

kora.jenkins
Hello,
I have configured a job, that will be done on the
- master node of my jenkins running on a
- windows system.

The job will be done by using the windows batch calling "msbuild.exe".

Before invoking the "msbuild.exe" I create a junction (logical link) to a common directory - it's content will be referenced by the build project.
Junction (logical link) will be made by using "linkd.exe" / Windows 2003 resource Kit Toolbox.

This junction is content of the jenkins jobs directory / jenkins WORKSPACE.

Everything (builds) works fine.

But in case of removing the job, jenkins will not only remove the junction (logical link),
it removes the content of my common directory too - of course very  painful !
