Ummm, most /tmp directories have "noexec" hardwired on them.

It you do not have that, then who owns the File and is it set to runs as
the owner?

        [greg at knight:tmp]$ ls -l test.sh
        -rwsr-xr-x  1 root root 20 2006-07-13 11:43 test.sh
        [greg at knight:tmp]$ ls -l /usr/bin/passwd
        -rwsr-xr-x  1 root root 26616 2005-05-18 02:33 /usr/bin/passwd

in any case for these kinds of thing, are best kept to protected
filesystems. /tmp isn't a good idea. I had to remount with exec enabled.

I believe the real problem though is the fact samba is expecting the
program to be suid, if I am not mistaken.
