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?
