[Samba] Help with archive bit request

What would be the best way to get an archive bit issue resolved. I've
already posted twice on this list, and issued a bug report, but without
any feedback what-so-ever. I'm wondering if there is some other way to
this issue. I've run across at least five other people reporting similar
with samba and how it relates to NT space backups without any acceptable
answers. I'm including a few examples to back me up. See my previous posts
for details on how to replicate the problem.

	note: using smbclient and setmode does not fix backup issues,
	the backup software needs to change the archive bit itself.

	note: this looks like the exact same problem I'm seeing with

	This is a different but somewhat related problem that I have seen,
	can be fixed by creating a c$ share for backup-exec to try to use. I
	also hit this problem before the archive bit issue but the samba
	logs had enough information to figure it out.

Thanks in advance for any help resolving this.
