[Samba] mask question

Hi all,

We are all using here a linux lan server with samba. We got unix and windows
clients but I have some troubles with unix clients.

I defined some shares with create mask = 0644. This works perfectly for
windows and linux clients but when I list files on the remote lan server
from my linux workstation, I don't see the real mask of the file. I always
see the mask 0644 ( even if the file has for example a mask of 755 ).

Secondly, I can change the mask of files. So if I manually chmod 755 a file,
I don't receive any error message but it doesn't change anything.

Thanks for your help ???
