FIXIT: Windows Clients Can’t Follow Symlinks On A Samba Server
Oh, Samba, how I love thee. And by love I mean wanting to strangle the ever living turds out of you. From the bottom of my heart, of course.

follow symlinks = yes wide links = yes unix extensions = no
While we’re at it, have some credits.
