[Samba] vfs_recycle directory_mode and recycle docs

Hello all,

I have a share with the following conf:

   vfs objects = recycle
    # config-file = /etc/samba/recycle.conf
    recycle:exclude = 
    recycle:excludedir = /tmp|/temp|/cache
    recycle:directory_mode = 0777
    recycle:keeptree = yes

Some confs I got from the official samba docs at:

Others I got from forums around the internet, like the 'mode' and 
commented 'config-file' above. One question and one problem:

1. The question: I could not find documentation for 'mode' or 
'config-file' neither for recycle nor vfs. Where can I find it? The 
above url has none.

2. The problem: when a user deletes a file from some folder, I get this 
folder created on .recycle with permissions 0700, no matter the 
recycle:directory_mode = 0777 config above. This forbids the next user 
who tries to delete a file from the same folder. How can I make the 
recycle create the tree with 0777 permission?

Best regards and sorry if this has already been discussed before. Thanks 
for any hint, docs, whatever.
