Description Jan Rome 2008-11-13 14:10:46 UTC
using the vfs object recycle, whenever an active user authenticated into a samba share deletes files from the repository folder, the files instantly reappear with a new name (an additional prefix of Copy #1 infront of the name).

Deleting the new file results in Copy #1 of Copy#1 of file... deleting that file makes Copy #1 of Copy #1 of Copy #1 of file etc.

It would be easy enough to exlcude_dir the repository folder itself, but that function is obviously broken.
