When I open a file (Word doc in this case) on a share I have marked as 
read-only and the do a "SaveAs" to a share that has a "force create mode 
= 0775", I would expect the file created to be writable by user/group.  
But the permissions I get are 666.  I can't get the "write" permission 
to show up.  If I copy the same file using windows Explorer, it is 
creatred correctly.  I tried to open a .txt file from a cdrom drive and 
"SaveAs".  This worked as expected?  Is this the way it is supposed to 
work?  Is it MSWord at fault?
