I'm no windows expert, far from it, but I think you need to be granted
specific security permissions for that file to be able to change permissions
on that file. Even in a windows server share if you right-click on a file
and choose properties/security then there is a group of folks who can do
various things as denoted by the checked items in the dialog that comes up.
Access Control Lists can get quite complicated and I do know that later
version of Samba have improved ACLs over earlier so it may be a combination
of windows and Samba that you are dealing with.
