  Yes! i'm very interested...
  if u can release the patch code i think many samba users will say
  thanks to u :0

  and my little suggestion, if user can add something at smb.conf like

  protected dir = /home/share,/home/users1
  trashcan = /smbtrash

  than it would be easy to use...
  there is another person at the samba-list used to do the "unlink"
  replacement berfore. maybe u can contact him...
  i will try my best to test ur working result.
  thanks for ur reply !!!

  Best Regards,
