[Samba] CVS checkout problems to Samba 3.0

After upgrading a Samba 2.2.8 to a 3.0.0 I am having problems to checkout
data from a CVS repository to a location on the Samba server. Checking out 
the same data to a local disk or to a location on a Samba 2.2.8 server does 
work without any problems.

Sample structure in CVS repository:


I normaly checkout starting from dir_1 so dir_2 and the files are generated 
automatically. Trying to do so, when the target is on Samba 3.0.0 ends with 
an error message, saying that dir_1 cannot be created. Any directory or 
file below dir_1 is mising after the ceckout.
When I create the directory structure on the target Samba 3.0.0 server 
BEFORE running the above checkout, the checkout runs fine.

As stated above, doing exactly the same thing (checking out dir_1) to a 
localy attached disk or a Samba 2.2.8 server works fine.

Any idea what went wrong when configuring the samba server? Is there any 
new (relevant to this problem) option I should change or set in smb.conf?

Many thanks, Felix
