The "ls" output indicates that this is perhaps a FreeBSD server and files
have ACLs on them?  Also, it appears that you have an absolute path for the
recycle bin that lies outside of the share's connectpath. Depending on
server configuration this may be an issue. Can you perhaps provide the
complete share definition since VFS objects are of particular concern, and
if it's a FreeBSD server, please provide ACL information for paths in
question (getfacl <path>).
