OS X Permissions
Starting with OS X 10.5.4 there have been problems with the Mac client connecting and properly working with group-style permissions set on a Samba server (10.5.3 and below seem fine). Additionally, 10.6.x introduced a new issue with vetoed .DS_Store files that worked fine on 10.5.x and below. Adjust this to meet the specific needs.
