It turns out that the home directory name was too long (under smb.conf
[Username too Long]) and shortening it fixed the save problems.  I did not
know there was a character limit.  The user's permissions were all correct.

Seems with MacOSX 10.3.2, there are problems saving files after it has
been edited on the samba share.  It will error out and say "operation can
not be completed because one or more items are missing -47".  When you
click on cancel, it will create a file named in an incomprehensible way.
Any ideas?
