OK, it is a bug, this got my interest and yes, it would seem that you 
cannot use another path for the recycle dir, or so I thought until I 
found this: https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8637#c5

Added 'crossrename' to the vfs_objects line and it works!

vfs objects = recycle crossrename
recycle:repository = /Recycle/%U

ls -la /Recycle/rowland
total 12
