The following man page is the one I read several times when things 
started to get hairy and I narrowed things down to issues with vfs 
recycle - and where I was looking for some enlightening notes on the 


Something along the lines of:

"vfs objects = recycle

Please note that the config line above will reset the vfs objects 
already configured, which can have unintended consequences, specially 
when Samba is configured in AD mode. To avoid this, the recycle module 
should be added to existing vfs objects (... with some suitable 
instructions on how to find out which existing vfs modules are 
configured by default, maybe)"
