Honouring eXecute permissions on NT?

I am testing a RH 6.2 box running Samba 2.06 for the purposes of 
migrating about 400 user shares from an existing NT 4 box. These 
are student accounts, so we currently have very stringent 
permissions for each user share based on group memberships, 
etc, and set using NT xcacls. In most cases, uses have ONLY the 
following file/dir permissions: rwd/rwxd, ie: they cannot execute 
any programs stored in these locations.
All PCs are NT 4 also, so similar restrictions are used to lock down 
the local files. The problem I've found is that I cannot get Samba 
shares to behave in the same way - removing the execute 
permissions from a file still allows NT to run the program. Is there 
any way to accomplish this?
