"unix extensions = no" fixes your problem, isn't it?

This is not a workaround, this is a solution. Otherwise MacOS X uses
"chmod"  (an UNIX extension), and nothing prevents it server-side.

Please tell exactly which options your are talking about.

Please tell exactly which options your are talking about.

The "create mask" doesn't impact the chmod UNIX extension. And nothing
prevents this chmod except "unix extensions = no" or insufficient
perms (i.e. local UNIX permissions as if you runt chmod locally).
