you're right, my fault.
but while checking i found another difference between his recylcle conf 
and mine, dont't know if it matters:

he has:
         recycle:exclude = *.tmp *.temp *.~??
         recycle:excludedir = /tmp /temp /cache

i have:
         recycle:exclude = *.tmp, *.temp, *.~??
         recycle:excludedir = /tmp, /temp, /cache

it's worth a try to insert these commas as seperators.
but thinking about it something other pops to my mind:

what are the permisions on his .recycle folder?
AFAIR the files get moved as the connected user-id,
the users have to have at least UNIX-write permision to that dir, or the 
files will silently get lost.
