Another follow up from a user just came in.

An interesting workaround is that a user can create a new folder in a
share, to which he/she can copy files from anywhere else or create new
files, he/she can also delete and modify files in said new directory. So
the new directory created works as it should.

The user can also copy files from this new directory back into the main
share (where user couldn't modify/delete). However, once that's done,
the user can't modify/delete the file anymore.

All file permissions look correct (0660 and 0770 as specified in the
smb.conf). Ownerships, too.

What could be wrong?
