Admin equiv creates root owned files

I just noticed this and am questioning the security implications.  I have
the following in smb.conf

   admin users = twinders
   domain admin users = twinders

When I login to Win95/WinNT with the twinders username and correct
password, any files created on the Samba server are owned root and group
system.  This is under Digital Unix 4.0D and CVS HEAD from 5/24.  Can
anyone explain why these files should be root owned instead of user owned?
