[Samba] Permission issue (I think)

No love.  I'm getting exactly the same thing. 

It's interesting, smbstatus still reports RDONLY.

I removed NT ACL support entirely (and the tcp buffer sizes) and bounced

This may be your problem. We *never* test without NT ACL support being
set to yes anymore. This option should really be removed.

Remove it from your smb.conf and retry.

Second guessing the kernel on SNDBUF and RCVBUF sizes is also a bad
