... as in they dont appear to be forcing anymore anymore ? =)
I've tried on two seperate machines, slightly different configs but same 
statements in the stanza I was testing...
Trying to force 750/640 and it appeared to work quite nicely in the 
past.. No other mode statements around, and according to docs, force 
does a bitwire OR on the mode, no AND or masking. Still, with 750/640 
forced, I get -rwxr--r-- and drwxr-xr-x  thesedays..... very odd...

Anybody else use these statements that might be able to replicate or 
tell me to go RTFM one more time?

for reference, the statements are::
   force create mode = 640
   force directory mode = 750
