I have some problems with samba 3.5.6 on debian lenny.
I have symbolic links in some shared directories, and samba should 
follow these links.

Without any special config entries, my smb client just list sym links to 
folders as unknown files:
? l?????????  ? ?     ?        ?                ? myfolder

With the following configuration:
follow symlinks = yes
wide links = yes
unix extensions = no

If I do an "ls" on the mounted directory, ls says: operation not supported.

//server/data on /srv/data type cifs 

With log level 4 I didn't see any special logs..

"And bind mount is not a solution for me...."

Thanks for your help
