This is something I'm working on at the moment in 2.0.x
and HEAD. The Linux trustee patch seems ok for the particular
problem, but doesn't allow Windows clients access to modify
ACLS for files that they own. To do that you need POSIX
ACL support - that's the API we'll be adding into Samba
2.0.8 and HEAD (and TNG with the merge going on).


Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
