Samba 2.2.0 problems editing ACLs via NT/Win9x

I have a problem in samba 2.2.0 (latest attempt was on the CVS version from 30/5/01) that I have previously posted, but without any response, not even commiserations 8-(.
We mainly have Win95/98 machines for our users, and would like to give the file authors the ability to control who can access their documents, but herein lies the problem.
I am trying to edit the ACLs on a RH7.0 linux server with the ACL patch installed from, but although it now works fairly well from NT4 (browsing users only gives users in the smbpasswd file, but a search will give users from /etc/passwd), it won't work from the security tab on a Win9x machine with the SRVTOOLS package from the NT4 disks installed - clicking on any of the three buttons (Permissions, Auditing or Ownership) gives a "The procedure number is out of range error" and the samba logs (debug level 3) show:
api_fd_reply: INVALID PIPE HANDLE: 0

The server has security = domain set and has been successfully added to the domain (NT4 PDC)

Has anyone seen this (or hopefully dealt with this), or is this a fundamental problem with win9x that is insurmountable?

BTW has the kill SIGUSR1/SIGUSR2 to change the debug level been removed? - it doesn't log the signal anymore (like under 2.0.x) and doesn't appear to have any effect.

Thanks in advance,
