[Samba] Samba and file permission question

Hello all,

We've been having problems with our virus scan (McAffe VirusScan) 
changing the permissions on files it scans over a samba mount.  (It 
sets most of them to 666, basically it just unsets the x bit.)  

This is turning in to a real pain since a lot of our people have their 
unix homes as mounted drives.  Has anyone seen or heard of this before?
I searched for quite a while for a reason or solution but I wasn't 
exactly sure what I was looking for so it was a bit difficult.
