Sorry, what are the Samba limitations regarding ACLs in this case? The
error is definitly caused by Samba's not properly handling ACLs? If
so, then it seems reasonable to use rsync on the destination side. But
otherwise, I would prefer to go by without rsync on destination in order to
have the possibility to change the destination to machines where rsync is
not running without much reconfiguring.
