[Samba] Vanishing Permissions on Shares

I am trying to move our network from windows NT-2k to Samba /Linux.
So far everything is great but there is one main obstacle; when I apply 
permissions to a Samba share via my W2K workstation, the permissions 
instantly disappear.
This happens regardless of the owner / creator of file or the user / group 
permission I attempt to add. 

I have run 2.2.7, 2.2.8, and now 3.0 beta3. All three behave the same, 
though 3.0 seems nicer.
It's a RedHat 9.0 box with the 2.6 test kernel ( so I can use ACLs).
I am running Winbind and it works great.

The client workstation is Win2k Sp4.

I have logging on full debug @ 10, and nothing obvious is showing up. In 
fact no errors are being reported at all.
