Just a thought: Check that your unix permissions allow that
group to have group write access to all the share directories.

Also you may need "force create mode=664" rather than simply
"create mode" (which is better named "create mask"), and
"force directory mode=775" for directories.

Finally, if a user in  doccontrol moves files or directories into
this share using a WFW or WIN9x box, the Unix group
ownership will not change - you will have to manually chgrp
them using Unix commands.

Hope this helps!
