Symbolic links in samba shares

Problem: When you create a symbolic link inside a samba share, everything is fine when browsing the share in Windows. In Linux though, the symbolic links may be treated as links to the local filesystem, which will not work.

I don't really understand why this is the default samba behaviour, but you can disable it by setting "unix extensions" to "no" on the server for this particular share or globally.
