[Samba] "hide unreadable files" also hides readable files

We have a Samba 3.0.11 Fileserver running on Solaris and
joined to an Active Directory.

I have shares, with many directories, and I want to
hide the directories, people are not allowed to access
anyway. So I engaged the "hide unreadable files"

This basically works.

The Problem arises, when the user is logged on locally
(not authenticated to the Domain) and mounts the share
by specifying his Username/Password.

When he tries to look at his own files, they're hidden!
He only sees world readable data.

Can anybody explain this?

Thanks alot
