[Samba] SAMBA setting file permissions

Sorry if this comes in twice, but Eudora was still showing this in my send
I'm pretty sure this is a SAMBA issue.
I have a strange problem when changing permissions on a file (ex.
index.html) through Windows on a SAMBA share.
For example: All user files are accessed through SAMBA
Through W2K, I set the permission on my index.html file so that only the
user has read/write and nothing for group and Everyone.
Now this should break my web page, but to my surprise it still loads!!! I
check the permission of the file on the UNIX server, sure enough the
index.html file shows mode 600. Hmmmm, next I check the to see what the
perms look like on the Web server. Sure enough it shows mode 600
too?!?!?!?! And yet the page still loads in my browser. So I restart
Apache, the page still loads; I restart the nfs daemons on the web server,
the page still loads; I make sure and empty my memory cache and disk cache
on my browser, the page still loads!!!!
Its only after I do a "chmod 600 index.html" (in UNIX) again, that the page
finally breaks and I get the 403 error. One other test I did was to 'su'
to the apache user. Even though the index.html file was mode 600 it could
still read the file. But again after doing a "chmod 600" in UNIX then the
apache user could not read the file.
Has anyone else seen this behavior? This happens on SAMBA shares for both
Linux and Solaris.
Apache version: 1.3.19
SAMBA version: 2.2.5
Linux: RH 7.2
I just want the chance to prove 'Money can't buy Happiness'" - a bumper sticker
