I'm having exactly the same problem, except the clients are windows xp
(sp1) machines and the servers are sparc/solaris (7 & 8).
Furthermore, this appears to be a timing-related problem, as when I turn
on level 10 debugging, I cannot reproduce the problem (I assume the high
logging is causing everything to slow down, and the client to not
attempt to access the deleted directories in time).
I've attached a level 5 debug from a server running 2.2.8a, 
as it's the best I've been able to get so far, 
but will keep trying to get a level 10 one.

Something else that may be of interest is that I've not been able to
reproduce this on a (completely different configuration) debian/x86
machine with samba 3.0 beta2.
