Yeah, just tested it once again to be sure - completely removing the
`vfs objects` line. No change :-(

One more observation: When creating a link in the osx client, it creates
a file with some content in the share (no *real* symbolic link), so when
I type the following in the osx client console it shows the link:

ln -s non_existent linkname

But on the server, `linkname` is actually a file with some weird content ...

# cat linkname

Looks like a candidate for the vfs_fruit module (translate symbolic
links?!)? (tested it with vfs_fruit and without).
