Group permissions not behaving properly in Path Finder 5

I have two Lion machines with Path Finder 5 that work the way they are suppose to work. So I know it's possible to make this work the correct way.

I have two other Lion machines with Path Finder 5 that do not work correctly.

I attached a screenshot of how I have set my permissions. WHen I am in Path Finder and create a folder it works fine. But when I am in an application and I create a folder it does not give group "write" permissions on the folder. This is a major problem on our XSAN since we want to make sure all 4 machines are able to create folders and files and can be seen and written by all machines. This works great on two of our machines with Pathfinder 5. Not so great on the other two machines with Path Finder 5. There must be a file somewhere that Path Finder needs to modify in a way where any time a folder is created in AE/FCP it adheres to the preferences that I have set for new file and folders.

If you can give me any insight into this that would be lovely!

    The New Folder and New File permission settings only apply to folders/files created within Path Finder 5. Path Finder doesn't replace Finder or the Open/Save dialogs. There must an odd setting on those 2 machines.

    Philip, I think you're talking about Final Cut Pro, is that right? If you search for fcp permissions on a search engine, it returns quite a few results.
    Check this link, for starters. One thing that caught my eye is the Setting Ownership Permissions on External Drives section, but don't know exactly how relevant it is.
