Forgot to add:

chmod o+t directoryname <dirname> should do the trick
(pay attention to your /tmp, as this should have this set as well... )

PS: I't in the HOWTO as well.

This is not a samba-issue, it's defined behavior under *NIX: 

Delete access under UNIX requires w(rite) access to the directory which 
the file is placed in, i.e. your WORLD-writeable directory is 
the reason for this.
