DFS ACL delete bit on, but ACCESS_DENIED on delete.

John Janosik is trying to delete a file hosted on DFS, where the write mode
bit is off, but the acl's delete bit is on, and with the new code in
unlink_internals() (I say new, relative to the 3.0.11 which was previously
running), he's getting an ACCESS_DENIED from can_delete (which then in turn
must be getting it from open_file_ntcreate()).  Any thoughts on the best way
to approach this?

John, can you verify in a sniff that ACCESS_DENIED is what's coming across
the wire, and not just the client message?
