Is that exactly what 'ls 'la' produces ? Could there be a '+' on the
end ?
As show, the user would have full permissions and the group would have
read and write permissions, all others would have no permissions.

Depending on how you have set up Samba, you may be using extended ACL's
and attrs, but without further info, this is hard to say.

Could you post the output from 'testparm -s' from the Samba server and
the full output of 'ls -la test.txt'
