Fedora 5 mount.cifs showing incorrect permissions

I have just upgraded to Fedora 5 and have mounted a CIFS partition using

mount -t cifs

ls shows files having the S and t bits set
-r-xr-Sr-t 1 root root 9484 Jan 8 11:01 myfile

If I chmod 755, the permissions show correctly without the S and t bits.

When I umount and mount again, the permissions have the S and t bits set.

Does anyone know what is causing this problem and what the remedy is?
