Samba - XP can't list folder contents

I have a following share

comment = HOME
browseable = yes
read only = no
create mode = 0777
path = /path/path
guest ok = no

and only one samba user (sambar). Inside the /path/path directory I've created another folder "test" and put some files into it.
The problem is that user sambar (from XP) can see these files only if he has full rwx permissions to the "test" folder. When I try to chage it to read-olny or read-write - there seem to be no files in the directory.

If anyone has an idea what is wrong.....
