Is it possible that /export/private/%S doesn't exist?  (i.e. %S isn't
what you're expecting it to be?)

If you set the path to /tmp or something, does that make the share

I'm just wondering whether %S is of the form "username" or
"DOMAIN\username", and whether case sensitivity is important.  I'm
guessing it is, being in a UNIX path name.
