Re: [Samba] Strange behavior with file/directory permissions.

If I remove the "inherit permissions" parameter, newly-created files and
directories have the permissions specified by "create mask" and
"directory mask," respectively. This is as I expected. With "inherit
permissions" set to yes, new files and directories have the same
permissions as the parent directory. As far as I can tell, this only
affects new files/directories.

I don't have any such option specifically defined. And, as mentioned
above, new files/directories are created with the proper user and group,
so as far as I can tell, the login ID is being mapped properly.
