How are you re-sharing? Are you re-exporting the nfs mount point itself?

It works if you don't no? IOW, 

path = /home/stuff
read only = No

mkdir /home/stuff/nfs
mount -t nfs server:/share /home/stuff/nfs

Now you can see the files, yes?


mount -t nfs server:/share /home/stuff

and you can't?

Other stuff. Are we kerberised? What does the share look like in
smb.conf? What command are you using to mount the nfs share?

Any other info available?
