I've seen that too (I do not have the URL at hands right now) and it 
also gives a solution to the problem, but the solution is concerned 
about an Windows clients.

The idea was to use attrib command to change some information, but this 
command will not affect a file located in the Samba/NFS server. By the 
way, the message Windows gave me was something like "Access denied".
