Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: samba

Steps to reproduce:

1) Right clicking on  a folder  in Nautilus and choose "sharing options"
2) Set up an SMB share with write permissions
3) Using a Windows PC, create a new file (or copy a file) into the new share
4) See how the Ubuntu user cannot access the file without becoming root from command line

I suggest setting the default owner of the new files in the share to the
user who created the share.

** Affects: samba (Ubuntu)
