Commit itself only change config, but samba itself do not know about the 
change yet. Configs are automatically reread each 60 seconds (I think) 
otherwise you have to issue manual samba reload (in Debian invoke.rc 
samba reload).

Are you sure that filesystem perms are ok? If everything look ok, run 
smbcontrol smbd debug 3 to rise amount of debug info and look into logs.
