Thanks, Volker & Karolin!

How soon before release? I have stumbled upon a mkdir (at least the smoking gun) bug whe using aixacl2 that applies AIXC acls when NFS4 is on the parent with "fidi" set. So it appears to ignore any exisitng ACL regardless of inheritance and applies a 755 (based on umask). Then going to security tab in windows cascades the issue into three allow and three deny entries as the AIXC acl is converted to NFS4 in the vfs and presented to XP (with appropriate deny out of order message from XP :-) )

Generating logs to find the source. Once I have more detail, I'll open a formal bug on this one. I have a feeling I will miss 3.2.0 final.
