Looks like you're running a domain controller. Probably should use WINS, make 
sure your clients register themselves and "wins" to the "name resolve order".
     name resolve order = wins host bcast

Seems to me that "create mode"/"directory mode" would be logically mutually 
exclusive with "force create mode"/"force directory mode". Let the force be 
with you and remove the non-force directives from your shares.

Of course running a newer version of samba may help as well.
