[K12OSN] smbldap adjusting permissions from Windows

Actually, the share I'm having trouble with is not [homes], although
that may give me the same problem -- I didn't check.  I'm concerned
about a shared-access share as follows:

   comment = storage for everyone
   path = /mnt/freeforall
   writable = yes

/mnt/freeforall has 777 permissions.  Everyone can write to that share
via samba, but through Windows, a user cannot change permissions on his
files/directories that he creates in that share.  He can change the
permissions through Linux, though.
