[Samba] Files and directories created by WinXP client are read-only

My WinXP client creates files and directories that are writable only by the 
file owner, not by the group to which that user belongs. There must be 
something all-too-obvious that I am overlooking here, but I'll be darned if I 
can find it. The files and directories can be read just fine, but I can't 
write to them.

Clues? Help? Commiseration?
