2.0.4 and MSoffice: possible problem with nt acls

I upgraded to 2.0.4 last night.  Today people are having trouble using MS
Word.  People goto save files and they get a dialog saying that the save is
unable to complete because of permissions.  I suspect this may be related
to 'nt acl support' being yes by default in 2.0.4, so I've disabled that

Specificly, it appears that the word temp files (~xxxxNN.tmp) end up with
NO PERMISSIONS at all -- that is ls reports all dashes in the permissions
I am unable to reproduce this on my machine, but it's happened with at
least 2 of my users, and in a share that doesn't have 'force create mode'
settings.  I've had no reports of it happening in another extremely heavily
used share that has create mode/mask settings.  I'll continue to
investigate this.  Has anyone else noticed anything?
