I am not sure about the following advice especially if you are using ms-dfs 
but you could try "follow symlinks = no"

Subject: [Samba] BacBackupkup

anyone knows how to back up a unix/linux box to w2k ?
On the unix/linux box samba runs, but the w2k backup 
wants to follow the softlinks. So it runs into infinite cycles.
Is there a way to avoid this?
Is there a way to mark softlinks as shortcuts?
