#1701 Shortcuts not expanded from command line

WinMerge 2.8.0, current SVN trunk r5295.

Giving a shortcut path from command line results that shortcut file to be opened, instead of the file/folder it points to.

To reproduce:
#1 create a shortcut for file/folder
#2 open command prompt
#3 start WinMerge in command prompt WinMerge <path_to>/shortcut file/folder2

Expected: WinMerge expands the shortcut and compares the file/folder it points to against second given file/folder.

Actual: WinMerge opens the shortcut file and compares it against another file/folder.

    Attaching a patch to add shortcut expansion for paths given to command line. It is a trunk-patch, but applies with trivial changes to 2.8 branch.

    File Added: CmdlineShortcut.patch

    Looks OK to me.
