My thanks for your assistance in reducing my smb.conf files to their 
relevant portions.  Now that this is available for all participants to 
inspect, I hope the cause of the problem can be determined.

As I noted in my original post, I suspect the change relates to maya 
using version 3.6.25 and sylvia using 4.3.11-Ubuntu.  Perhaps some 
defaults have changed between these versions and I need to either modify 
my current statements or add additional ones to restore proper behavior 
in the newer release.

My thanks in advance to any who can assist me in resolving this.
