[Samba] Files are being saved as read-only

I'm using extended ACLs and winbind so that file ownerships and 
permissions are directly tied to domain accounts (e.g., owner is 
MYDOMAIN\myname).  My problem is that when a user opens up, modifies, 
and then saves the file, the user's UNIX level permissions change from 
'rw-' to 'r--' -- in other words, the write permission gets dropped.  
I've played with the basic and extended permissions of the parent 
folder, and I've looked at the masks in smb.conf, but nothing I've done 
so far has resolved the issue

Any idea what's going on or what might be causing this?
