permissions are even 775

I even now found the same behaviour on a totally different machine!

machine1:  w2k sp2
  user1 -> policies applied
  user2..n -> policies don't get applied

machine1:  w2k sp1
  user1 -> policies applied
  user2..n -> policies don't get applied

tried all different kinds of upper/lowercase combinations for ntconfig.pol and 
have it now owned by root.

I really don't have a clue... it would be cool to have an access.log for samba 
so I could see what exactly get requested (if something get requested at all)

...setting debug to 3 isn't really the same. But I'll try that again anyway
