Admin User Problems

Hello to all,

i encountered a problem with the per-share option "admin users". May be i
understand someting wrong but i cannot connect to a share as a "admin user".

My config looks like this:

  writeable = no
  valid users = user1 user2
  admin users = admin

I use the "valid users" to protect other users than "user1" and "user2" to
connect to the share (which realy works, even for the admin). The "admin
user" should be able to administrate the share.

Is "valid users" exclusive to "admin users". Is it neccessary to use the
"read list" parameter rather than "vaild users"?

Thanks for any hint.
