I tried this on the samba-users list, but didn't get any response.  I'm
hoping maybe someone here can help me out.  I suspect this may be a problem
with my configuration (in the samba/winbind integration department) but I'm
not sure where to look...

Subject: Editing permissions from NT explorer doesn't work.

Does editing file and directory permissions from NT 4.0 explorer work in
2.2.1a? I'm having trouble with it and I'm wondering if this is a known
issue or a problem with my configuration.

My setup is Samba 2.2.1a and winbindd from HEAD (not the most recent CVS,
but the most recent one I could get to work properly...groups have been
broken in more recent ones.)  The OS is RedHat Linux 7.1, with kernel
version 2.4.5 and ext2 ACL patches.  Authentication to the NT domain
controller works properly, and Linux can work with the NT users and groups
properly, so winbindd appears to be working fine.  I can edit the ACLs with
getfacl and setfacl, and the changes show up properly in NT explorer, but
any changes I make in NT explorer are ignored.  I get errors like the
following in my log.smbd:

[2001/07/17 09:11:25, 0] smbd/posix_acls.c:create_canon_ace_lists(747)
  create_canon_ace_lists: unable to map SID
S-1-5-21-86195882-1589917278-758854815-513 to uid or gid.

Is this a problem with my setup, or a Samba issue?  Is there a necessary
step to integrate Samba 2.2.1a with winbindd that I overlooked?
