[Samba] Unix Extensions

OK, I got the snapshot version from last night and installed it, and
finally got it to start. It complained briefly about the unix extensions
option being set in the share section when it should be in the global
section, but after I moved it, I get no complaints.

A few questions about it --

1) When I test it, I mount the share from a linux client, then try to
create a link (both hard and symbolic) from an existing file to a new
file within the share. Is this an adequate test of the "unix extensions"

2) Assuming that's a good test, it means something isn't working... I'm
still getting an "Operating not permitted" error, on both the hard link
and the symbolic link. I'll be glad to be the test subject, if this part
of the project needs extra testing...
