samba by default uses

the 'security = share' concept emulates the Windows 95/98 sharing
concept where each share connection can be a different user but that is
essentially obsolete and should be avoided if possible.


Yes, I suspect that's my problem, what a pain!

I seem to remember there's a way to tell samba that I want user X to
connect to a particular share as user Y, I guess (if there is such a
thing and my memory isn't playing tricks) that's what I'd better do.


You can set up a share to always use a specific Linux User/Group by using the "force user" and "force group" options.
