Check the posix permissions in the shares are set to allow the group "nobody" (or whichever you are mapping as guest) to r/w.

Check the logs at level 3, am willing to bet there is a Chdir/Permission Denied error somewhere...

Is the guest account (guest or nobody) able to able to access the
folder you are mounting as a samba share on your native unix
