[Samba] Q: Using create mask under [Homes]

 	I am trying to pass samba the "create mask = 0700" directive under 
[Homes].  In spite of this, files show up with permissions 740 (group 
readable).  This directive seems to work fine in other shares, this 
behavior is special to [Homes].

 	Is [Homes] overriding my create mask directive intentionally, or 
am I missing something stupid? ^_^

    comment = Home directory for %u on %h
    browseable = no
    writable = yes
    path = /archive/homes/%u
    valid users = %S
    create mask = 0700
    force user = %S
