samba 3.6.3 exporting aufs

I thought I could provide a smooth transition from traditional hard
drives to ssd by layering the ssd on top of the existing file structure
with aufs .
Unfortunately folders with content not completely copied up to the ssd
can not be renamed through samba. Renaming (mv) on the server works
flawlessly, and afterwards that folder is copied up to the ssd and
renaming works from windows, but before that, windows7 returns "invalid
device" and smbclient says "access denied". To do an rename from windows
requires copying the folder to the client, deleting it from the server
and copying it back, then it works, as the folder is now on the ssd.
Could anyone please help me to gain some insight into this? I know that
samba strives to copy windows behaviour, but AFAIK there is nothing like
aufs for windows...
