Is there a way to override this behavior? It is really
annoying to have to do it by hand.
If not, would the Thunar folks please consider
a configuration option to override this behavior.
from samba's smb.conf:
; map archive owner execute bit must include 0100
; map system group execute bit must include 0010
; map hidden world execute bit must include 0001
; Note: after doing all the above map stuff, it is a good idea to do
; a mass chmod to 2766 (Read Only=off, Archive=on, Hidden=off).
; And, you definitely want hidden to be turned off!!!
map archive = yes
map system = yes
map hidden = yes
