SUMMARY

Invoke vault password scripts via original path specified.

When passing as an executable vault password file the name of a symlink pointing to an executable, invoke that executable by its original (symlink) name, not by its real path. Some executables rely on the name by which they are invoked to determine their behavior, and invoking them by their real path loses the information that's in the name of the symlink.

Fixes #18319
