What are you doing? If you can reach share1 then you can see the files. You
have the right to! Even if it is a group-share
then the single user owner doesn' t matter!?

I found this post on the list, and it' not the solution for me.
My questions is:
Do we have a setting to hide files on samba share1 if the files' owner 
is not me?
and, still I can read&write those files through samba share2.
Samba share1 and share2 point to the same /path/folder.
