If we can't get to the bottom of it during this thread, I would rather
we reverted the original patch until we do. This area *is* tricky, and
the reason I added all the tests wasn't because I fully understood it
either, but because I wanted to nail down the behaviour so we noticed if
we changed it. Previously we never noticed at all, it could change
unintentionally as happened here, and that worried me.

So that the kernel gives administrator the kind of powers you would
expect it to have, like the ability to change ownerships.

The ACLs come from Windows, so the test needs to ensure that given that
ACL, we have a deterministic result on the sysvol share, given that the
posix ACL is what the users will end up being restricted by.
It isn't good that adding an nss module changes it, but we need to
understand the change, not just codify it as the new normal.
Given this, I think it is important we run the test with and without
nss_winbind, and ensure it doesn't change either way.
