Directories deletion failed

Hi all,

We are trying  to export RozoFS (a scale out nas, see
with Samba to windows clients, but we're facing a strange behavior.

While every thing sounds good, windows 7 explorer fails to delete
directories recursively.

We create a directories foo/bar on the share, if we suppress foo with
the explorer, bar is suppressed but not foo (do it twice and you're
done), on the other hand in Windows CMD, rmdir /S foo works perfectly
(as with linux and OS X (10.5 and 10.6 at least) clients).

The test has been done with Samba 3.5.6 (debian squeeze) and 3.6.6
(debian wheezy). smbd logs ant tracing smbd with strace gives almost
the same for Explorer and CMD.

Any idea will be really helpfull.
