Hi Felipe,

Thanks for responding.

Yes using chmod and mv provided by MKS under Windows XP.  Also, note that
Windows rename does not work either.

No.  About all I have done so far is narrow the problem down to our source
control system doing a mv of a file with 544 permissions.

I have not checked the logs.  I'll take a look.

This works fine on a local Windows XP filesystem.  It also works fine to a CIFS
share served by a Network Appliance filer.  The only server that appears to fail
is samba.  Why would it behave different than other CIFS servers?
