For the sake of completeness for users that are bitten by this bug and search for instructions:

The filesystem permissions of a fully publicly shared directory (i.e. ~/public) has to be drwxrwsrwx.

   chmod a+rwx ~/public
   chmod g+s ~/public

And /etc/samba/smb.conf has to contain the  line 

   inherit permissions = yes

in the [global] section.
