I think this is a recurrence of an old bug. Running Samba 3.5.4 with
CTDB on GPFS with the vfs_gpfs module using CentOS 5.6. It is a
vanilla CentOS RPM's with the vfs_gpfs module a self compiled add on.
Running with NFSv4 ACL's.

Basically what happens is when a user saves a file in Office 2010 (no
Office 2007 to test with) with Windows 7 on the Unix side the
permissions on the file get set to 0070 and all hell breaks loose.

Some references on very similar issues in the past



The only difference is that we get 0070 permissions now instead of 0470.
It only seems to effect files saved with Office 2010.
