[Samba] Photoshop changes file permissions

Hello there,

I am running Samba 2.2.2 on a Solaris 8 server. It works great except when
users try to save files within Photoshop 6.0. It looks like this application
changes the permissions of the file such as the owner is only able to read
it and the group and others can read, write an execute.

For instance, the following file on the Solaris server:

-rw-rw-r--   1 user     staff     449140 Mar 15 00:06 file.tiff

will become:

-r--rwxrwx+  1 user     staff     449140 Mar 15 00:06 file.tiff

once opened and saved by Photoshop...

Is somebody willing to shed some light into this behaviour ? Please cc
my e-mail address  in your feedback as I am not (yet ;-) a member of this
distribution list.

Anticipated thanks for your kind concern and assistance.

Kind regards.
