Problem with "nt acl support" when saving Excel or Word Files

does anyone have an idea concerning this one? Has anyone else also
seen these symptoms?
The problem described in this posting occurs here, too.
The situation: A user has read/write permissions on a Word/Excel file,
via group membership, but file owner and group are different from
the current UID and primary GID.
After editing and saving the file ACLs are broken, in one or the other
way, for all of NT4, W2k, and WinXP clients, but differently for all of
them. All clients do store by creating a temp file, first.
With NT4 the final owner and group is changed to the last writer,
but original user and group privileges don't make it into the new
ACL. Samba log reports it got SMB_ACL_GROUP_OBJ and SMB_ACL_USER_OBJ
for them, however. The new group has no write permissions.
With Win2k the final owner and group is changed to the last writer.
Previous user and group permissions are correctly transferred
to the resulting ACL. But the new owner gets write permissions
With WinXP owner and group remain the same as in the original file.
Samba log reports it got SMB_ACL_GROUP_OBJ and SMB_ACL_USER_OBJ,
but actually setting them fails with "Not owner" on the temp file.
Nevertheless, the file group gets write permission revoked.
Being totally confused :)
