[K12OSN] smbldap adjusting permissions from Windows

I'm testing out smb/ldap authentication on some virtual machines.
Everything looks like it's working except that my Windows users cannot
change permissions on files they create in the samba shares.  Actually,
they can check off "read", "write", etc, but the permissions don't
"stick".  If the same user logs into the linux machine, he can change
the permissions.

I'm thinking there must be an option in smb.conf that controls this --
does anybody know what it is?
