Hm I  remember having this sort of problems a couple of weeks ago on
an samba 2.2.3a server and XP clients.
THe users complained that they coyuld not read the files although
permissions were ok. I could not investigate at that point and
suggested that the copied the whole 'folder' to a new 'folder'. 
In the new folder the could happly update the files...
(but I still did not check what was wronf in the first place.)
