[Samba] Can samba hide symlinks?

I am using samba to pull a backup of my linux host over the network so I
made the following share:
comment = share for veritas
path = /
valid users = root
read only = yes
dont descend = proc dev mnt lost+found sys
follow symlinks = no
hide unreadable = yes
The root user is mapped to administrator and the samba host is on the
domain, so the windows box logs on and pulls it's backup just fine
except for when it gets to a symlink it gets 'access denied' which
causes veritas to throw a fit.
What I would really like here is to just not show symlinks in this
share. That would eliminate the data from being backed up twice where
there is a symlink, and it would also never return 'access denied' which
would make veritas not suck as much.
