Wrong solution for what's really not a problem.
You should map the samba user to 'myself'. Or, even better, place both users
in a group and have /home/myself owned by myself:commongroup and 770. 
Either I have missed something, or it doesn't work as I expected.
Still the directory got to be like this:
drwx---rwx 4 myself users        4096 2009-11-27 14:14 .

I changed the permissions and group, and now I it is RW from WinXP:
drwxrwx--- 4 myself domain users        4096 2009-11-27 14:14 .

All the subdirectories or files are with permissions and groups built like
-rwx------ 1 myself domain users    0 2009-11-27 14:14 hello.txt

I still wonder, what to do, if we have to allow new users to be linux users
in this server.
I'd rather use the original Linux groups (barack:users) and permissions
(700) here to keep he users out of the data of the other users.
