Okay, admittedly I'm running an old version 2.0.5, but, why do I have to set
the eXecute permission in Linux before Samba will let a Windows client see
any files?  Why would execute have anything to do with read and/or write?  I
would think I could set -rw-rw---- or -rw-rw-rw- and be just fine, but oh
no, you get an empty list and cannot create new files until I change it
to -rwxrwx--- or -rwxrwxrwx.
