I'm a bit puzzled also. Because we changed that early on (took out 
non-essential statements - I was assisting) to simplify the smb.conf 
and as far as I remember it didn't make a difference. There was a group 
of changes made when it started to work properly and we didn't, at that 
time, go back and try to tie down exactly which one(s) solved it.
