Now i have Samba samba-3.3.9.
Problems with refreshing remains.
When i connect from one machine with speciffic user - everything seems 
to be OK.
When i connect from other machine with same user - refresh doesn't work.
I observed same behaviour when i reconnected from same machine. 
Reconnection was done after execution of:

net use /delete * /y in cmd on windows.

My configuration is simple:

        writeable = yes
        path = /home/desire
        force directory mode = 770
        force group = desire
        force create mode = 770
        comment = desire
        valid users = @desire @design
        create mode = 770
        directory mode = 770

ls -ali /home | grep desire

49718272 drwxrwx---   5 desire           desire         512 Nov 17 11:31 

id user1
uid=1022(user1) gid=1014(design) groups=1014(design),1035(desire),1062(fff)

Can someone tell me what am i doing wrong?!

And i don't understand real purpose of force group paramater.
When i, for example put in above configuration:
force group = fff
when  i connect with user1, that group(fff) doesn't appear in file 
permissions of just created folder. Instead the permissions are:

drwxrwx---  2  user1      desire       512 Nov 17 12:33 New Folder (7)
