The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 6530
The streams_depot is susceptible to permissions problems

When using the streams_depot VFS module, the first time you add alternate data stream data to a file, the whole directory tree to that file is created in the .streams directory as the connected user. This can lead to problems when another user adds stream data to a file, because all the parent directories are owned by the original user. Jeremy's suggestion was to switch to root before writing the streams data.
