Looking at the code of enum_msdfs_links it does indeed not
recurse. Given that Windows would do it (which I don't
know), we certainly have to recurse here as well. This will
potentially be a very expensive operation.

Can you please file a bug report at
https://bugzilla.samba.org and append a sniff against W2k3
that proves that Windows does indeed recurse when doing a
dfscmd /view. No promise it gets fixed soon, but at least it
does not get lost.
