Having difficulty with samba & permissions being changed when windows clients 
save files.

Initially files may be shared 0774 (e.g. some excel file) after it is opened 
and saved by a windows client the permissions are 0744.  Thus the next access 
by a group user cannot write the file.

No mask options are specified in the smb.conf so all defaults are being used.  
Is there a reason why the permissions are being changed when a file is saved?
