When ONE PARTICULAR user connects to \\mydev\oubsgout <\\mydev\oubsgout>
the user (running win95) connects( from windows explorer) but only sees top
level directories in the share. Any ideas as to why only one user should be
affected?The network between the client PC and the server checks out ok.
When the user attempts to expand one of these top level directories a
messagebox appears stating that the requested file does not exist.

        security = DOMAIN
        workgroup = SERVICES
        password server = serv1 serv2 serv3
        encrypt passwords = true
        netbios name = peewing
        netbios aliases = accesslist mydev 
        server string = Samba %v on (%L)
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        log file = /opt/samba/logs/%L.log
        log level = 3
        max log size = 512
        load printers = No
        guest ok = no
        browsable = yes
        include = /opt/samba/lib/smb.conf.%L
        comment = "\\%L\%S <\\%L\%S>  [%v]"
        oplocks = no
        mangled names = no
        preserve case = yes
        case sensitive = yes

In the smb.conf.webdev file  we have:

        path = /fs1/oubs-goutime
        valid users = wes64
        force user = wduser
        writable = yes
