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`.
