[Samba] Samba Shares With only Partial Access

With the "valid users = %S" parameter removed, there is no effect on my 
accesses.  However, ahines, from her machine, now gets the incorrect 
login dialog when she tries to access the top level share: archive.  
Furthermore, I now can get directly into my shared directory (ehines) 
directly via the "files" share, as well as by burrowing down from 
"archive/ehines."  ahines still sees, though both "archive" and "files," 
and I still see "archive on lserver1" at the top.

Both users have read/write/sticky bit for user and group for their 
respective directories, and both users are in the same group (backups).  
Other has execute only. 

smbclient //lserver1/files -Uehines%password gives me 
NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE. I get the same thing when I use root or ahines 
vice ehines.

Thanks for your help.
