Can you do this via the command line (without Samba)?  It could be a
filesystem issue, and Samba is just passing along the error.

From the manpage:

Reloading the configuration file will not affect connections to any
service that is already established. Either the user will have to
disconnect from the service, or smbd killed and restarted.

Samba 2.0.7 is pretty old, you should probably consider upgrading, it
might fix a few of these problems.
