Dos error messages on delete

I can't figure this one out.

Samba 1.9.17 compiled under BSD 2.1, WIN95 (950B) clients.

Trying to delete a file on a samba share from a w95 dos prompt
gives the error:

     S:\>del h15.html

     General failure reading drive S
     Abort, Retry, Fail?a

But copying a file to a samba share works fine:

     T:\PCB\DL05>copy h15.html s:
     Overwrite s:h15.html (Yes/No/All)?y
             1 file(s) copied

If you use a command like "del h15.html*"
it works fine.

Using the Win95 explorer also works fine...

Here is an excerpt from a debug level 4:

 smb.conf file:

   valid users = pcpeople pca pcb pcf nta administrator
   public = yes
   writable = yes
   printable = no
   create mask = 0777

Any ideas? 

I know my config file is probably screwed up, but I have been playing
with it to try to find out what the problem is...
