The bug seems to specific to Solaris acls.  We can't reproduce it on Linux
with the posix acl patch either.  You can easily determine if XFS suffers
from the bug though.

Normally a directory when viewed from the NT security tab will have
something like

	DOMAIN\mygroup		(rwx)(rx)

This should translated into a named group entry of rwx and a default group
entry for mygroup of r-x. 

cheers, jerry
