I installed CentOS 7 with samba 4.10.16, and add following
section to /etc/samba/smb.conf which is similar section to
one in smb.conf you had provided.

	comment = Test share
	path = /home/share
	valud users = @yano
	force group = yano
	read only = No
	create mask 0660
	directory mask = 0770

However, the issue could not be reproduced.

If I provide you with a test cygwin1.dll that outputs debug
messages, can you try it out?
