[Samba] hide unreadable with homes share

Hello all,
if i set hide unreadable on the homes share on a samba server (2.2.7 
acting as domain controller) Win 2K clients (XP and NT 4 are OK) get the 
"The directory you are creating may be not writable do you want to 
continue?" (translated from german)
while creating a directory with the explorer, a mkdir does not give that 
error. The created directory is writable. The explorer creates a tmp 
file in the newly created directory and somehow decides to give that 
useless warning.
Does anyone else see this kind of error? Or knows what the Windows 
explorer is testing for?

By the way, i want to set the hide unreadable to let the NT 4.0 users 
only see their own home directory instead of the whole list.


	path = /samba/homes
	read only = No
	create mask = 0600
	directory mask = 0700
	browseable = No
         guest ok = no
#       hide unreadable= yes
