I have recently encountered a problem in Samba 3.0.4 that ignores
the "write list" parameter when "security" parameter is set to
share. Below is the example of smb.conf to reproduce the situation.
In this example, I have used user shiro:shiro for accessing the share tmp.
security = share
guest ok = yes
path = /tmp
writeable = no
guest ok = no
write list = @shiro
In Samba 3.0.2a, it allows write access to user shiro on share "tmp",
whereas in Samba 3.0.4 it does not permit writing any data onto the
share. If I change the security mode to "user", Samba grants write
access to the user shiro.
I had a quick glance at the CVS tree and realised that between the
revisions 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 of smbd/service.c, set_read_only()
function had been removed and the whole procedures had been migrated
to is_share_read_only() function in smbd/uid.c.
What I'd like to know is whether this change of behaviour is
intentional or not, in other words do you classify it as a bug?
this should be fixed in post 3.0.4 releases. If you still encounter the problem
with 3.0.5 please reopen this bug.

Do you mean it should be fixed in 3.0.5rc1?
If that is so, then I must disappoint you to say that I have managed
to reproduce it in 3.0.5rc1. I'm not sure about HEAD cvs tree, as I
failed to build binaries from it.
I've managed to reproduce it from the binaries built from the source code in
subversion (Rev. 1556). I am going to reopen this issue.
