So how does one access a share under Linux without using CIFS? Am I 
missing something? Is there some other method?

As far as why a Linux program would change permissions, that is 
simple... If under Linux, a file is deleted and recreated (for example 
writing a file on exit), the created file is not going to get execution 
permission, despite a users umask.
