If you own a directory, unix allows you to delete any of the files found
within that directory (at least all the versions of unix I've worked
with).  If I understand correctly, this is the problem you're faced with
here.  I recommend that you should not expect samba to prevent you from
doing things that you would be able to do if you had an interactive login
to the machine.
