[Samba] File transfers between folders that are symlinks to different partitions of the drive

I run Linux Gentoo 2.6.28 with Samba 3.0.28 installed. In one of the shares there is a number of symlinks pointing to the folders found on different logic partitions of the drive. When I move a large file (some gigabytes) with a Windows client from one folder to another (which are symlinks to different partitions), after some time the system offers to overwrite the file with the same name but different size. I cancel, and in some time the file is transferred as it should be. But all the time the process takes the share is hanged. And a Windows-client on another computer can function all right.

Is it possible to fix it?
