Quoting Patrick Loijens (loijens at aspera.com):
> Package: samba
> Version: 3.0.24
> In this version the parameter "create mask" is incorrectly used for 
> restricting rights on already created files, so chmod on an cifs mounded 
> share is blocked when trying to extend file permissions. See thread:
> http://lists.samba.org/archive/linux-cifs-client/2007-January/001690.html
> In current samba-releases this bug is corrected (see end of thread: 
> http://lists.samba.org/archive/linux-cifs-client/2007-January/001697.html )
> Is there a chance of applying the patch to the mentioned debian version?

Until someone convinces the maitnainers that a security issue is
involved, I would say "no chance"
