link-dest on mac with samba share

I did some testing and had rsync backup a folder, and then hard link files
when doing incremental backups.
The problem now is that it doesn't seem to work when the destination and
--link-dest is a samba share.
On the local machine, it worked all ok, but since changing the destination
to the samba mount (/Volumes/our.backup).
I am using rsync 3.0.2.
The error i get is:
rsync: link "/Volumes/our.backup/today/CentOS-4.5-i386-binDVD.iso" =>
/Volumes/our.backup/yesterday/CentOS-4.5-i386-binDVD.iso failed: Operation
not supported (45)
i try to link the file manually, and it doesn't work, so i guess this means
it's more a OS X issue (or samba?) than an rsync issue.
Just curious if anyone else out there has a work around for it.
the rsync line i try is:
rsync -ahvi --modify-window=1 --delete --stats --timeout=360
