[Samba] File permissions

Samba 3.4.7-58.fc12, windows 7 client.

I have a share where, if I right-click and chose "properties", everything
shows up as "read only".  I can un-check that, hit apply, and if I view the
properties again, they are read only.

Interestingly enough, I can go in and create files, modify files, rename
files, delete files, etc..  However, some of the users' software checks for
read-only status, and is throwing errors.

Here's the smb.conf section:

        force user=appsuser
        force group=appsuser
        read only=no
        oplocks = False
        level2 oplocks = False

Directory looks like this:

drwxrwxr-x  94 appsuser     appsuser      20K 2010-06-02 14:32 apps

Files inside of it have permissions similar to these:

-rwxr-xr-x    1 appsuser appsuser 424K 2009-10-01 15:54 AAUTOLN.DLL
-rwxr-xr-x    1 appsuser appsuser  894 2008-07-23 08:37 Accounting.HSICTB

Any clues?
