This is mainly because of excel:
user a created a.xls
change acl of a.xls to :
after user a save file a.xls, its acl changed to:
I think excel remoeved the orignal file and created a new file, this file inherited parent directory's default acl, which is o::rwx
If I remove parent directory's default acl, even user a cannot access to file a.xls after saving file.
It's a bug of Excel?
All these tests were run in Windows 2000, within a NTFS partition.

Subject: I have a excel problem
I have a excel problem:
If I using samba share(samba 2.2.4 or samba 2.2.5)
user a and b belongs to group allusers
a created a excel file: a.xls, change mode to 774 at windows side
relogin with user b, modify a.xls and save, that file's owner will
changed to b, and mode changed to 644, that means, a cannot edit the
file any more.
If I using a windows local NTFS partition
after user b save the file, the owner also chenged to b, but the
mode chenged to everyone:rwx, so user a can edit too.
Anybody has the same problem? I think this maybe because excel deleted
the old file and created a new file while saving the file.
Is there a satisfy solution?
