Samba not showing Symlinks

After an upgrade to Ubuntu Lucid Lynx, all Samba shares were missing symlinks, esp. symlinks to directories outside the share.

To enable these again, add the following lines into the [global] section of your /etc/samba/smb.conf:

follow symlinks = yes
wide links = yes
unix extensions = no

Then restart smbd and you should see the symlinks again.
