The documentation does not report any interaction between the unix extensions and the forced modes, so I'm assuming it's a bug.I'd like to know if it is a known bug ?Has it been solved, if so in which version ?

Check out the parameters "force security mode" and "force directory security mode"
which you will also need when using unix extensions. Remember that the CIFSFS client
code often creates a file then sets the mode afterwards, in two operations, not one.
