  One thing that I looked at early in Samba 3 was to thoroughly
cross check parameters for self-consistancy. For example, if
create mask is set to mask out the execute bits, and the map
system, hidden or archive options are set, the latter
will fail silently.
  I have a list of about twenty things to check for.
