Having some permission issues on folders

Server 2008 R2 is what our file share resides on. The issue I'm having is there is a folder that is restricted to only certain users, several of those users have full rights to the directory, one of the users is the owner of the directory, permissions are set to flow down from the root of the folder. A user who was not the owner but had full permissions saved a folder with several files in it for the owner, when the owner attempted to access the new folder she was unable to. I propagated the permissions from the root down and there were no errors, however the new folder which was placed inside the root did not change permissions, I had to go to that directory manually change the permissions and propagate those changes to the files, which did work.. I'm confused on why this is happening, any ideas are appreciated

So I removed all the users from having full control, I added a folder and a file in the directory and it still did the same thing. I noticed there was CREATOR OWNER in the permissions list also so I dumped that and now its working fine. Thanks for your suggestion it sent me down the correct road?
