please also try with a user with uid => 1000 ( or greater ) 
change : valid users = paul 
valid users = %U

and why dont u use the default for the users  like this: 
        comment = Private docs of user - %U
        read only = No
        create mask = 0644
        directory mask = 0775
        browseable = Yes

this is also useable for xp, when you enter \\servername\paul  

is your /home a nfs mount of other external source. 
the also use this in the [homes]: 
      wide links = yes
      follow symlinks = yes

and add this in global config: 
       host msdfs = No
       unix extensions = no

good luck.
