        map hidden (S)
               This controls whether DOS style hidden files should be 
mapped to the UNIX world execute bit.

Do you have 'world executable' bit set on /myshare/test2? You can add it 
with the following command: chmod o+x /myshare/test2

What do you expect from "browseable = No"? Share with this flag will not 
be shown when server receives a request for ALL shares. You will need to 
specify the exact share name to access it.

So, what exactly do you mean by "it doesn't work"?
