This stuff should work.  We have to translate the permissions back into
posix rwx, but as long as the changes fit that, and the user can do it
at the console, then it *should* work...

You might want to try Samba 3.0, see if it's any better there.  This may
well be a bug.  (Not that I'm particularly in a position to chase it
down, unfortunetly)
