[Samba] Problem re-writing on a SAMBA share.

I set up a Slackware 13 filer server running Samba 3.2.13.

There is an application with the server running on XP pro and two 
clients running on Win7 machines. The server and the clients all use the 
same ID which I can use to access the target share to read and write 
files. Problem being, when the application client is trying to rewrite 
application files the changes do not get saved. I turned up the logging 
to level 3 and see the particular userid opening files (Read: Yes, 
Write: No) but it appears that is the initial read, since when 
reading/writing TXT files I see the same entries and no log entries 
calling for a file write.

Any ideas on what may be going on?

1 Log entry:
application opened file Archives/Archive/Title 
File/00/00/00/0000008E.PDF read=Yes write=No (numopen=1)

config file:

workgroup = bizworkgrp
interfaces =
netbios name = daserver
encrypt passwords = yes
security = user
Server String = biz CFS
logon drive = m:
log level = 3
log file = %S.log
max log size = 500
debug timestamp = yes

read only = no
guest ok = yes
public = yes
valid users = application
write list = application
create mask = 770
