honouring default_protection ace

I am using Samba 2.2.8 from JYC, February 2005 build on VAX/VMS 7.3.

Adding a DEFAULT_PROTECTION ace for a directory, regardless of the setting 
of SAMBA_ALTERNATE_DIRECTORY_PROTECTION, does not appear to have any effect 
on new files created in that directory via samba.

"create mask" is 0777, as is "create mode" for the share (I have also tried 
omitting the create mode entirely).  Rather than the OR behaviour described 
in the documentation for the unix version, it appears to simply apply the 
"create mode" precisely.

Is this by design, or should I have configured something?
