Thanks for your reply.
Yes it is very frustrating and confusing. I have been using samba for ages and never hit this wall.
I have tried setting both security mask and directory security mask to 0770. It does not make any difference.
I also tried unix extensions = no but still the same problem.
I have tried rebooting as well (after a complete apt-get upgrade and apt-get dist-upgrade) but still the same problem.
Not to be ungrateful but I would really like to solve this without bindfs.
There must be other people out there with the same problem?. The whole idea in SAMBA must be to share files.
Almost my complete smb.conf:
