I just fixed this. It actually surprised me a little to learn how feable
ACL access control on Windows shares is. With Windows NT 4.0 at least you
can mount a share as any authenticated user regardless of how the ACL is
set. Now that wouldn't be that bad if you could not access anything
withing it but you can query the existance and attributes of a file or
directory if you know it's path regardless of how the ACL is set! I had to
resort to trying to *listing* the contents of the share. That causes
Access Denied if the user is not listed in the ACL.


The fix will be in the next release RSN.
