We have a volume /var/pcnet/trash.  We have the recycle VFS place all
trash in this volume (/var/pcnet/trash/%U).  So it isn't within the
quotaed area (home directories, whatever...).   Since the recycle bin
seems to be relative to the root of the share we create a .trash
sym-link to /var/pcnet/trash and have samba veto the file so the user
can't see it.  Then we have a "trash" share with a root
of /var/pcnet/trash that only administrators can access.
