DOS Attrib mapping

I've got a similar problem with archive status of files

I've added to the SMB.CONF:
map archive = true
create mask = 0766

But when I put the property Archive with Windows NT, no status Archive
is put for the file.
If I use chmod u+x on this file, and when I see it in the Windows
I see the status Archive. But when I want to see it with the Property
dialog on Windows, the case Archive is not checked, and the status
Archive is retired, without I changed anything!

However, it works find with Windows 95 and Windows 98.
