it looks like you are using 
   store dos attributes = Yes
on a file system which does not support *nix xattr or is not mounted
with the right options. A working /etc/fstab entry could look like:
    /dev/sda10   /ext3   ext3  acl,user_xattr  1 2
Additionally, to avoid any mappings of DOS attributes to unix file 
permissions, use the following in smb.conf:

	ea support = yes
	store dos attributes = Yes
        map archive = No
        map hidden = No
        map system = No
        map readonly = No

Cheers, Günter
