    I cannot test this change as I get the following error

Apr  6 10:07:25 saturn smbd[3745]:   The module was compiled against 
Apr  6 10:07:25 saturn smbd[3745]:   current SMB_VFS_INTERFACE_VERSION is 16.
Apr  6 10:07:25 saturn smbd[3745]:   Please recompile against the 
current Samba Version!

I have installed samba.Version 3.0.24-3.fc6 from an RPM on my system. 
I have checked out the latest Samba 3.0 release base and compiled 
that. I have taken the module from that and put it into 
the samba runtime area. I have had to remove this due to the error 
above. When will the version 21 of the interface be in the mainstream RPMs?

I presume your change is to make the system look for non-root 
directories and exclude those, ie

recycle:exclude_dir = temp Downloads

will find directories like:


but as I cant test it currently what happens with


Is this excluded as the root of the name is in the exclude list?


Is goodstuff ignored due to matching the 'temp' part of the path?

The code I supplied required

recycle:exclude_dir = temp/ Downloads/

and would find

buy not




However, all subordinate (child) directories would be ignored, ie


would be ignored.
