[Samba] Samba permissions error and other odd behaviour (RFH)

Hi, can anybody help me with the following please:-

I've have just migrated to a new server (old FC5, new FC6).  I have migrated
my samba config from the old box.

As far as I can see, the config is correct (I hardly changed anything), but
samba logs a "/mnt/share" permission denied error when I try to connect.
When I changed the path of the share to "/tmp/share" it worked.  The
permissions/ownership of the directories are all identical, and yet it works
with one and not the other.
The other strange behaviour I noticed is that although I could copy a file
from the client to the tmp share, the client could not see any of the files
I manually added (on the server) to the share.  Even if I rebooted both
client and server (and indeed connected from a different client), only the
file I had copied to the share from a client was visible.  I renamed the
file on the server, and the client picked up this change.  (/mnt/share) is
just a different ext3 partition mount point, and my non-root user can access
it on the server so I don't believe there is a problem with the mount
parameters - default).

Has anybody seen this behaviour before, or can anybody give me a pointer as
to what I might need to do to get it working?
