[Samba] Losing Permissions of Files

I have a OpenSuse 12.2 system running Samba 4.0.6 (compiled from source).
Every once in a while, we run into an issue where all permissions on a file
are lost. I've checked the ACLs, and they seem fine. The only way to get
permissions back is to copy the file to a new name, remove the old file,
and rename the file back to the original name.

Can anyone help solve this issue?

My smb.conf follows:
# Global parameters
        workgroup = XXXXX
        realm = XXXXX
        netbios name = XXXXX
        server role = active directory domain controller
        dns forwarder = 555.555.555.555
        dns forwarder = 555.555.555.666

        path = /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol/XXXXX/scripts
        read only = No
        browseable = No

        path = /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol
        read only = No
        browseable = No

## Samba shares
        comment = General Company data
        path = /STR/corp/data
        read only = No

        comment = Projects
        path = /STR/corp/projects
        read only = No
