That's interesting: I assume you're doing so from the
command line on the server, so the result **should**
be a file which Samba can write.
However, Windows people often use a "rename" scheme
to keep around unchanged and backup copies of the
user's work (eminently reasonable: Windows dies a lot)
You may need to change the permissions of .bak or other
