[Samba] Strange behavior WinXP and 2.2.8a and inherit permissions

I have a quite strange problem.
I have updated my Server with Suse 9.0 to Samba 2.2.8a. From that moment
on I couln'd run programms directly from the share anymore. The WinXP
Client says: "you dont have the permission for this file." But I have
all permissions for it. This only occurs in that shares where I have set
"inherit permissions" to yes. When I set it to "No" it works again. I
can run programms from the share. I tried it on two XP Clients with same
results. When I used a WinMe Client it worked all the time. 
It looks for me a bit like a bug. For I have not changed anything except
updating samba to 2.2.8a 
Has anyone an Idea what this could be? Or how I can get around it?
