well, it does not work here very well with samba 2.2.2 (stack release),
and linux. I  have tested it with both linux 2.4.3 (I believe, anyway, the
one that came with rh 7.1), and linux-2.4.13-ac4 with acl patches enabled.

Disabling it makes the whole thing run much much faster (i.e. saving a
200MB roaming profile takes about 5 to 10 seconds with large readwrite
disabled. With large readwrite enabled takes about 30 seconds).
