Are you referring to Vista as the client? If so, upgrade to 3.0.30 as 
Vista SP1 brought in a bunch of changes that broke Samba (and probably a 
bunch of other things too... ;-)

Secondly, I see you have a "valid users" variable under "[homes]", do 
you explicitly need it? Try removing it and see if the problem disappears.
