So am I, because I cannot reproduce your problem:

$ mkdir ~rowland/test1
$ chmod 700 ~rowland/test1
$ smbclient -U rowland //localhost/rowland
Enter WORKGROUP\rowland's password:
Try "help" to get a list of possible commands.
smb: \> cd test1
smb: \test1\> put test1.txt
putting file test1.txt as \test1\test1.txt (0.0 kb/s) (average 0.0 kb/s)

root at stand:~# ls -lad ~rowland/test1
drwx------ 2 rowland rowland 4096 Oct 28 10:45 /home/rowland/test1

root at stand:~# ls -la ~rowland/test1/test1.txt
-rwxrwx---+ 1 rowland rowland 0 Oct 28 10:45 /home/rowland/test1/test1.txt
