Please describe the problem.

I created somelargefile on host1. A file with that name appears in the right place on host2 but I can't use it:

host2:~/annex% cat somelargefile
cat: somelargefile: No such file or directory

What steps will reproduce the problem?

I am running and I connected two hosts with the 'Local computer' workflow. I run assistant on both sides.

I make a file on either side, wait a minute for it to sync, and then observe this on the remote side:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 drewp drewp 178 Jul  9 23:58 somelargefile -> .git/annex/objects/Pw/vw/SHA256E-s8--bf87165d313027621936809a01da1994f9bd20ff9580c1380e7636e2443fe4ed/SHA256E-s8--bf87165d313027621936809a01da1994f9bd20ff9580c1380e7636e2443fe4ed

My "large file" is in fact 8 bytes long. The .map file contains the string "somelargefile\n"
