The issue seems to be with `tree`. The manual says:
By default, when a symbolic link is encountered,
the path that the symbolic link refers to is
printed after the name of the link in the format:
name -> real-path
If the `-l' option is given and the symbolic link
refers to an actual directory, then tree will
follow the path of the symbolic link as if it were
a real directory.
The `pass` command uses `--prune` to suppress empty directories, but it
seems to these symbolic links are not pruned.
Interestingly though, without the `-l` option (to follow symbolic links
to folders) then `tree` _will_ omit the symbolic link info.
So as a workaround, you can remove `-l` from the call to `tree`.
