From: grassu g on

I just upgraded samba from 3.0.37 to 3.4.6 on a gentoo machine. After
converting the passwd file (pdbedit -i smbpasswd -e tdbsam) I tried to
login from a windows client but it didn''t work. After commenting the
vfs-recycle entries in the shares definition I can successfully
login. I cannot find any hint that the vfs objects in samba 3.4 has
changed compared to 3.0.x. Can somebody help?

Thanks in advance,

this is the error I see in samba log:

# tail -f /var/log/samba/
