You were initially correct. Running samba alone would be simpler from a troubleshooting perspective.
I suggest you try that, get it working (there are numerous tutorials on the web, forum posts, the archive for debian-user and probably a samba ML) and then compare the config to what nautilus-share is creating.

Also, more people are likely to be familiar with samba itself than nautilus-share.
