[Samba] Problem with symlinks

I'm using samba 3.0.4 compiled from sources on a linux box (RH 7.3).
My smb.conf contains in a share section the setting:
follow symlinks = yes
In that share I created a symlink to a local file.
When I open the symlink from Windows box (the symlink appear as a
regular file) I access correctly the target file, but when I edit&save
the file, sometime the symlink is deleted and a regular file with same
name is created in place (as a duplicate of the target file).
The behaviour seem's to be Windows specific editor's dependent:
using UltraEdit all work fine, using other editors (e.g.: HTMLKit) the
duplicated file is created...
Thanks in advance...
