I have limited experience with Macs in conjunction with samba but so far
it seems to have been working fine for me.
What happens if you create a directory with 777 permissions in unix?
can you "ls -l" the directory from a mac terminal? My guess is that one
of the "x" bits got lost so you can't traverse the directory.

> Now when I access the shares from the OS X Client, I can see everything at the top level, but when i drill in even 1 level deeper, I can not see any files or folders. I can see an indicator that the folder is still trying to be accessed. On my win clients, there are no issues.
