[Samba] disappearing files

Samba 2.2.7-3.7.2 on Redhat 7.3 

Have a samba server setup that has been running for over a year now..... 
fairly simple configuration - it is functioning as a stand=alone server 
with smbpasswd backend. Everything has been working properly until 
recently - now randomly some directories do not display their contents. 
There are files in the directory, I've checked the ownership/rights on the 
files themselves - the logged in user owns the files, and the directory. 
They have rights to the Samba share by the "valid users" parameter. 

The directory (in this case) that isn't showing up is three levels deep: 

                /Tempstuff <---- this directory of files isn't showing up. 

I've set the log level to 10, and I'm not seeing anything glaring going on 
there, either. I cannot upgrade this server to 3.0x, otherwise, I'd 
probably go in that direction. 

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.
