Samba logs - no write access to share

If the name of the share and the name of the shared Folder are identically, users won't have any write access:


[data1]
 path = /share/data1
 writable = yes


Using this share, I don't have write access.

However, if I use this settings (notice the share name and the folder name differs), I have write access:

[data1_share_name]
 path = /share/data1
 writable = yes

Both times I tried to create the file "new-file-1.txt" with user "koni", I added the logs (log level = 5) for both.
