Multisites, symlinking and weird things happen... :o

Okay, so I tried doing the multisite-thing, and it works great. Then I figured I'd trying to go one step further, cutting down on disk-usage, by symlinking as much as possible - which was everything, except config.php and multisite_config.php. To clarify, the listing for my second site looks like this:

And yes, it does actually work - except for a little quirk that I can't figure out:

The pages have different page-titles and top-logos. On the second site, there are some links where, if I click them, the correct page does come up, but with the page-title and top-logo for the "main" site! Among others, the links Forum and Search does this! What baffles me is that if I remove the symlink to the forums folder and just copy it to the other site, it suddenly works fine for the Forum! Am I missing something?

All tables are shared except DB_ONLINE, DB_PANELS, DB_POLL_VOTES, DB_POLLS and DB_SETTINGS...

Is there a way to trace how php puts the file together? I mean, to get a trace of what includes it uses to build the page?
