cavaet :
not sure if this is a bug or configuration issue

summary :
all the contents and sub folders of a folder shared over samba were removed in error. 

environment :
server running 7.04
client running 7.10
wireless network

software involved :
stock pdf viewer

steps to reproduce (with our configuration) :
this was a little strange, however we hava managed to reproduce it twice.

1) establish a folder in a user home directory (/home/user/Networkshare)

2) share over samba with this config :
comment = User's Documents
path = /home/user/NetworkShare
writeable = yes
create mask = 0700
directory mask = 0700
force user = user
force group = user
valid users = user

3) on client machine, open a PDF and attempt to save to network

4) enter 'smb://user@server/UserArea' and press RETURN

5) enventually, a message 'Operation denied' will be displayed

6) check the folder [ /home/user/NetworkSharer], it will now be empty

user comments :
at step 4, we expected to be displayed with the network share folder, and from there navigate to the appropriate place to save to file.
