[Samba] backup problems

I have the following problems:

User1/Group1 save FileA on Fileserver and disable the archiv-attribute.
User2/Group1 change FileA on the Fileserver.
User1/Group1 stay the owner of the file.
That not a big problem, but the archiv-attribute didn't change!
(A change of FileA by User1/Group1 set the archiv-attribute)
-> the archiv-attribute didn't work for backup!!

User1/Group1 open FileB from Windows 2000 (not shared)
User2/Group1 can't open FileB from Windows. Ok, but my backup.daemon can
copy the opened FileB!
Isn't that a problem to backup a corrupt FileB?

my config:
NT4 as PDC
Suse Linux (8.2) with Samba 2.2.7a-72  as Fileserver (raiserfs)
user and group on PDC

More info available on request.

Best regards
