The problem was with Samba 3.0.25 and non-ufs fs. In the current version 
in ports, 3.0.26, samba seems to have some special coding specifically for 
zfs. Which means the previous tricks to get it working are no longer 
needed. I've not checked whether it also fixes the problem on other 
non-ufs fs e.g. msdosfs, but all is well for zfs.
