I suppose the problem was that samba was not able to manage the folder beacuse its parent folder had no execution permission.
But smbd runs as root user?! root shouldn't do everything?
I think that samba only manages the session, where as the actual Security of the files and folders is still managed by your operating system. With that being said, if you just have a samba entery for a share set to browse and write, Samba will set that up for all users. The operating system will control if the user does or does not have actual premessions to the files or folders.
