[Samba] SAMBA AD DC Access Denied to Redirected Folders

Hi everyone,

I'm re-posting this because my previous thread (see below) for whatever
reason I cannot reply to. So I'm starting a new one in the hopes that I can
respond to those who made suggestions and hopefully get to a solution.

In a nutshell, I've got a SAMBA4 AD DC server running Debian 8 stable. It's
setup for roaming profiles, home dirs and redirected folders. Randomly,
when users login they get an error about the recycle bin folders on each of
their redirected folders and are then denied access. The folders in
question are:

Start Menu

One response I got from Rowland is *exactly* what is happening. Furthermore
the fix does work (and is what I had discovered as a workable fix as well).
However, it only "sticks" for a few days and then it happens again. So I
reapply the fix, have the user log out/in...wash, rinse and repeat.

This is the MS fix Rowland suggested:

Another response suggested I disable the recycle bin on the desktop to see
if that is the cause. In windows 10 however, I cannot find how to do that.
If I right click on the recycle bin in the desktop it does list the various
recycle bin and their properties but no function to disabled them is
apparent. Also, I would be concerned with leaving that disabled if I
figured out how to considering how much data the users leave on their
desktops. HEnce the need for redirected folders. Perhaps it was jsut
suggested for test purposes...

Hopefully you guys can respond to this b/c I really need to address this.
Worse case, please cc me directly.
