I suspect that your backup software clears the DOS/Windows archive bit,
which Samba maps to the owner's executable permission. See Section 5.3 of
the O'Reilly book Using Samba for details.
I believe you can disable this behavior by entering "map archive = No" for
the share in smb.conf, but this may cause problems for the backup software.
I hope this helps.
