	create mask = 0640
	directory mask = 0770

In the [general] section of your smb.conf. This will set as defaulkt for all
shares, you can from there change according to preferences as you'd like.
This is how our config files are and we've had no problems whatsoever with
create/permissions for files nor dirs. Also, might just make note, that
using the 'force group = somegroup' line in a share comes in encredibly
handy as well.

... 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
