Thanks for this tip. I works like a charm!
I had disabled SELinux on the box, and didn't suspect SELinux to be
causing the problem (as I disabled it from the beginning).
I did the following to solve it:
semanage fcontext -a -t samba_share_t "/home/files(/.*)?"
restorecon -R -v /home/files/

I came across something like this myself yesterday - it was an SELinux
issue. Use "ls -Z" to see the security context of the files. You may
either to choose a suitable context, or set one of the Samba SELinux
(see "man samba_selinux").
