lost access to several parts of a samba share after upgrading samba

Hello!

I upgraded samba from 2.2.3a-12.3 to 3.0.2-1.2 on my server side
(linux debian woody with several sid backports, including samba)
yesterday.

Since, I don't have access anymore to dirs on remote filesystem
which are symbolic links pointing to another filesystem when
I use smbmount on the client side (linux debian sid). The error
message is something like "no such file or dir". I can't change
to those dirs, nor list files, etc.

OTOH, i can acces those remote dirs if I use smbclient, or if I
use windows as the client. I can change dirs, manipulate files, etc.
All is like it was before upgrading.

I remember I had to switch from nfs to samba 2.2 some times ago
precisely because nfs didn't allow me to access symbolic links
pointing to another filesystem. Samba 2.2 did. And now samba
3.0 doesn't. So I'm back with the original problem again.
Samba 3.0 doesn't, by default, allow me to access whatever nfs
wouldn't allow me to. Any way to defeat this?
