Thanks for the reply.  :-)

I would also need to do directories.  Ignoring the group sticky bit, the 
desired mode is the same.  So, I could lose the find and just "chmod -R 
0777".  But, what about symbolic links?  Or sockets, named pipes, block 
or character specials, etc.?  Hmmm...  Perhaps I need to forget about 
local access and settle for a Samba solution for regular files and 
directories only -- e.g. configure Samba to provide the needed 
functionality and then make Samba the only way into or out of GroupShare.
