maybe your parent directory has the wrong rights:

user: username group: wingroup

network: root.root         0750 (drwxr-x---)
samba:   root.wingroup     0777 (drwxrwxrwx)
username:username.wingroup 0777 (drwxrwxrwx)
*** this will *not* work - u need basically executable rights on all 
parent directories. (mistake in 'network')

network: root.root         0751 (drwxr-x--x)
samba:   root.wingroup     0750 (drwxr-x---)
username:username.wingroup 0700 (drwx------)
*** this will work - username has minimal x rights on all parents...

i hope it helpes...
