Maybe this is a problem with delete on close on the temporary file 
xxx.partial, which will be created from IE9?

The new file without '.partial' cannot be created and the 
xxx.partial-file is only 0 Byte.
I have a log with debug level 10, if anybody is interested in.

The downloaded file doesn't matter - tried it for example with


The share has 0777 nobody.nogroup, the share definition is

  comment = public directory on eis2161
  path = /downloads
  force create mode = 0777
  force directory mode= 0777
  browseable = yes
  writeable = yes
