Maybe a Problem with the umask of user root of your system ?

man smb.conf
     admin users (S)
         This  is  a list of users who will be granted
	 administrative privileges on the share.
         This means that they will do all file
	 operations as the super-user (root).

So i thing the a umask (022 or so ?) of root should be the Cause of your Failure.
