I was wondering if there is anyway to avoid the annoying bug whereby samba
doesnt know it has hit a recursive link. If you do a search from Winnt of a
UNIX samba share, if it sees a directory such as:
drwxrwsrwx 2 root root 512 Dec 8 14:54 foobar -> .
it goes mental trying to follow the link and search that directory again and
again. With Samba 2.0.7 it chews up 20-30% CPU of even our huggest servers.
With samba 2.0.6 it would occasionly go off the chart and panic the
If anyone has any clues it would be HUGELY appreciated, otherwise I am going
to have to dust off a very very old programming hat and attempt a hack.
