Ok, so it's not a permissions or configuration problem on the server
side, it seems. There is some difference between what CpMac does and
what the Finder does. Maybe you could set a higher debug level on the
Samba server and work out what is actually different between those two
from the log files.
OTOH, I yesterday tested the same configuration with my Mac OS X
10.2.8 and Samba 2.2.8 on Linux/PPC and I could not reproduce your
problem. I didn't have exactly your file, but used a PDF I had. I
tested with and without type and creator. So maybe just updating the
Samba server may work for you.
