samba + GFS

One of my file servers participates in a GFS filesystem. Samba shows in
every directory of GFS a directory .. which expands to the parent
directory. The GFS team says that this must be a bug in Samba:

What is probably happening is that samba is making incorrect assumptions
about the way that the filesystem returns directory listings.  My guess
that samba is assuming that the dir entry .. is the second item in the
directory, which is not nessacarily true.

Does anybody else use GFS and Samba ?
