[Bug 705319] sharing powerpoint files with samba fails on 11.4

Your setup looks sane and correct.
i'm relieved :-)

imo the problem is with powerpoint and how it treats it's files, and you have
to work around this... i found several threads on that topic when searching on
google to debug the issue.

[ as i remember from some explanation i found: powerpoint opens the file on
access and writes something about the access event into the file - then resets
the modification time to the value it had found on access - and that is the
problem on the samba server side. from what i observed when debugging the
issue, this explanation seems reasonable. ]

I'll discuss this with the upstream developers ;-)
thanks for taking care and looking into that problem !
