[K12OSN] smbldap adjusting permissions from Windows

Debian Etch
Samba 3.0.24
os level = 65

I confirmed the same behavior you saw.  I can change permissions on
files, but not on folders.  "public = yes" doesn't change anything.  I
don't see anything in the logs at the time that I attempted the
permissions change.

Anybody got any ideas?
