The workaround is very simple. Just change the rights of the smb.conf file. The group should be adm and the rights for the group should be set to rw. In commands:
sudo chgrp adm /etc/samba/smb.conf
sudo chmod g+w /etc/samba/smb.conf
Then it works for me.

And yes, IMHO it is a bug in the swat package.
