if you add this to the global section, or if you do not have "valid users
= root ....", TNG at present will FAIL to operate.

i will investigate this and find a solution.  in the mean-time, _copy_
each "valid users" / "invalid users" set into each [share], ok?

i realise this is a pain, and it probably explains a lot of the "it works
for him but not for me" issues.

which brings us to another possible approach to debug these TNG issues:
keep the smb.conf _really_ simple, and expand upwards from there.
