Yeah, this was the behavior I remember...basically, since NT4 doesn't have
inheritance, the problem didn't exist.  Win2k does the strangest set of acl
changes to propagate something, and in our translation between win<->posix,
we confused it into stopping in the middle of its massive chain of changes.
I really thought we had taken care of this.
