This is indeed the BSD behavior, though it was a surprise to me too.  I
thought BSD invented the setgid bit on directories behavior.  But current
NetBSD and FreeBSD systems certainly have the same straightforward behavior
that new files always get the st_gid value of the containing directory.
(As far as I can tell, they don't pay attention to the ISGID bit on
directory modes at all.)
