Thanks for your response, but it doesn't work either with exactly the same symptoms:
[2007/04/24 09:52:43, 3] smbd/process.c:switch_message(926)
switch message SMBrmdir (pid 19730) conn 0x80414a30

[2007/04/24 09:52:43, 3] smbd/reply.c:rmdir_internals(3947)

error packet at smbd/reply.c(4001) cmd=1 (SMBrmdir) NT_STATUS_NOT_A_DIRECTORY
Test setup is my_test_link -> my_test. There is a number of files/dirs in my_test. They are deleted, but not my_test_link. At the same time I can delete my_test without any problems.
If you wish I can provide you with additional info like strace output or something.
