Since you have "force user = xxx" in many of your share definitions,
I'm assuming changing to these users via 'su' still allows you to delete

Do you get the same behaviour when using "smbclient //localhost/share"?

You could try running smbd in debug mode and see what it comes up with
when you attempt to delete a file - that may give you something to go
