Using gadmin-samba to access shared files

Experts,

I'm trying to use gAdmin-Samba to share files from an Ubuntu machine to a Win7 laptop.

I've added the fileshares via gAdmin, but cannot add users.  The user has been added to the Linux accounts.   When I try to add the user thru gAdmin I click "Apply" but no users are stored.

What am I missing?
