Slight problem there (though probably nothing to do with your problem) 
'DG11' in the 'idmap config' lines should be 'HPLTS'

Do realise that all of your shares allow guest access ?

Apart from that, I cannot see any reason for the zero content files, 
unless whatever is creating the files is first creating a zero length 
file and then deleting it before writing the correct file (if this is 
the case, it isn't a Samba problem).
