a few days ago I upgraded to Samba 3.0.0.
The upgrade worked flawlessly.
I just wonder why the "force user" setting does no longer work like it 
This is an excerpt from my smb.conf-file:

	path = /home/www_200a3i/public_html
	valid users = peter, niklas
	admin users = peter
	force user = www_200a3i
	force group = www

Usually one expects that these settings make samba use the user www_200a3i 
 from /etc/passwd to create files / folders. But it doesn't, it uses root 
instead. However, the "force group" settings works just fine.

Any suggestions?
