[Samba] Wrong permissions

I have a problem with Samba file permissions.
It doesn't concerns every user, but most.

When a user creates a file it gets the wrong permissions. It gets
username:users and not as expected username:groupname.
So some useres can't write on a file, if someone else has saved it.
I dont't know why it works on some users and not on all. A part of the users
get username:groupname and the smb.conf part gets respected.

Here is the part from the smb.conf

        inherit acls = Yes
        writeable = yes
        valid users = @group
        force group = group
        path = /home/something
        read only = No
        create mask = 0777
        force create mode = 0777
        force directory mode = 0777

Thank you for your help.
