I had similiar problems with Mac's when I had veto files = /.*/ in samba 
share to pervent users from deleting their linux profile files from 
Windows workstations. (OSx likes to create .DS_Store -files to it's 
folders) For some reason files could be written to samba from Macs 
terminal window. Chancing veto files to /.bash*/ fixed problem for me.
