Hmm, maybe this is some kind of cifs recycle bin functionality? Do these
files go away when you stop the backend? Do they go away when the disk
fills? Or maybe they go away after a while automatically?
Try this: start a program that keeps a file open for writing (e.g. "cat
>foo"; type something), delete the file ("rm foo" in another window)
and see what happened. Then exit the program and check again.
