Thanks for notifying it :-) it means that you don't have xattr anymore 
and as we store ntacls in xattr you don't have NTACLS anymore appart 
from the basic one that result from the translation of the unix rights 
so given your ls I can say that you don't have the right to write to the 

I suggest that you get your xattr back online, and you check that you 
are able to set NTACLS from windows (think to give your +w on 
folders/files so that you can set the ntacls).

I wouldn't appear like the guy who is always grumbling but going to the 
list with this kind of information at the beginning can save us time and 
also having by default the idea to make a test without well can save 
even more time :-)
