[Samba] Access Denied when changing ACLs from W2000 client

Hi all

I'm having some problems trying to configure ACLs from a Win2000 SP3
client.  I'm running Samba 2.2.5 on kernel 2.4.18 (with acl + ext attr),
Samba is compiled with acl support etc.

Samba is configured with security=domain, and is running with local 
groups etc rather than thru winbind, I haven't been game enough to tread
those waters yet.

With the debug level set to 5 I'm getting the following errors in my 
client machine log after trying to add an extra group into the permissions
via folder properties on the W2k client.

Can anyone shed some light on this, I've played around with the security
settings etc on this share, almost certainly this is where I'm going wrong,
I can't see where. 

The share excerpt from smb.conf is listed before the log entries.
