Ubuntu Shares Permissions
Seems when creating shares, they are owned by 500:users instead of the firstadmin:users. This was a 64-bit install.

It appears that shares are owned by the Ubuntu equivalent of apache:users. I changed the ownership of /var/hda/files to my first user:users and it was changed back to apache:users within a day.
Not sure what is making the change, but presume it's Samba related. This prevents writing to shares in my case using a third party sync tool.

Had the same problem, resulting in an inability to create files/folders in anything under /mnt/samba/*.
After discussion on irc this was resolved by running these commands as root
chown -R myuser:users /var/hda/files chmod -R g+w /var/hda/files
where myuser is the original user name set when installing amahi.
