NTFS Permissions Lost Server 2003 and Windows 7

2003 Server file server, users occasionally report they get access denied messages when saving files that they have assigned inherited NTFS permissions to folders.  In this one case, a Windows 7 User, with their Documents mapped to network share (H:), tries to save files to their folder, which they have full rights to, with inheritable permissions propagating to all child objects within that folder, however they get access is denied message.  It is intermittent, they were able to save last night, but today they are not.  Why does this happen? The fix I did was to select "replace permission entries on all child objects..." and they're able to save again.  Is this a known issue? This has happened before for various users.
