> 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.
