Samba has always behaved like this for me, but I'm not exactly sure
why.  If you scroll down you'll notice that 'Special Permissions' is
ticked, which is Windows' way of saying "there are permissions that
don't fit the checkboxes here."  It seems to work fine if you just
ignore that initial permissions window and use the Advanced options

I'm not 100% sure on this one, but I think it's because you're not
logged on as a user that Samba thinks has admin access.  You might be
logging in as "Administrator" on the Windows box, but does Samba know
this user should have admin/root access?
