[Samba] Permission problems on Mac OS X

I know this might be half OT, but nontheless Samba is involved.

A customer of mine has two Macs with Mac OS X 10.5 and is sharing a 
folder on one of them.
We'd like to avoid any permission problem, so I put the followinf in 

create mode=0777
force create mode=0777
directory mode=0777
force directory mode=0777

This is usually enough to achieve what I want, with other OSes.

However, when the second Mac (the client) creates a file with 
OpenOffice.org, it will have mode 0755.

I was told this is a known problem, solvable with:
unix extensions=false.

I tried this too, but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

Any hint?

  bye & Thanks
