[Samba] SMB + Active Directory And No Ability To Delete Files And Folders

I hope that everyone is doing well.  I'm new to the list and look forward to participating in the community.  I've been using Samba for a long time and have always preached the samba gospel.  :-)  

I find myself with a peculiar problem.  I have a RHEL6 install running Samba Version 3.5.4-68.el6_0.2 acting a local file server and it is tied into an Active Directory server for the user management.  When a user on a Windows box supplies their Active Directory credentials, my Samba server validates them against the Active Directory server, creates a directory on the local server, which the user then mounts on their Windows machine.  

The problem is this.  The users can create files and folders, but can not delete them.  Has anyone seen this behavior before?
