force directory mode not working?

The system: Samba 2.0.6 on RedHat 6.2 (intel), using RedHat's 2.0.6-9
samba RPM.

The problem:

I have set up the following share:

        	comment = Intranet Website
        	path = /project/intranet/web/html/intranet
        	public = yes
        	writable = yes
        	printable = no
        	create mask = 0775
        	force directory mode = 2775

Despite the presence of the "force directory mode" entry, all
subfolders created in this share have a mode of 0775.

My perusal of the documentation indicates that 2775 is a perfectly
legal argument to "force directory mode", and indeed a quick search
of google turns up dozens of example config files using exactly that

Am I missing something obvious here?
