[Samba] Copied Files always have executable attribute

I'm a happy user of Samba 2.2.3a to connect my Windows 2000 machine with my
Mandrake 8.2 Linux machine.

However, I've a question.

When I copy/create a file from my windows machine to my linux machine, it
always ends up with the executable attribute bit set.
This is never correct since windows executables have no business on a linux

I can remedy this problem by manually using the "chmod -X" command.

Is there a way I can configure Samba to always not mark the executable
attribute in the process of copying/creating files?
