We have upgraded from Samba 2.2.7a to 2.2.8a.  We have samba running  
our our two UNIX file servers, one is Solaris 8 and the other RedHat  
Linux 7.3.  Samba was compiled as follows:

configure --prefix=/opt/samba --with-acl-support --with-quotas

Right now it doesn't looks like changing file/folder permissions are  
working from W2K.  When we right click on a file/folder and go to the  
security tab it show the current file permissions fine.  But when you  
try to change them it is being ignored.  No error messages are being  
shown.  No matter what we do no changes are happening on the UNIX side.  
  This occurs on the Linux file server too.
This did work in 2.2.7a and compiled the same way as above.
Is there something different in 2.2.8a, or is this a bug????
