[Samba] Taking ownership of files on NT/2k

I have a 2.2.7a member server (on Debian unstable), acting as a file
server for a W2k domain (which also has some NT4 clients, ie. mixed
mode). I'm also using ACLs.
Imagine I have a file on the server with an ownership of DOMAIN+foo
(full permission - rwx). I also have a user ACL on that file of
DOMAIN+bar, also rwx. This all works fine.
I was initially running into a problem whereby DOMAIN+bar could not
"take ownership" of the file ("Access denied"). However, I found the
"dos filemodes" option in smb.conf, and that is now working as expected.
Problem is, if I have the same scenario for a directory, it doesn't work
(also Access denied). I managed to grab some debug=10 logs, and here's
the relevant snippet:

--- LOG ENDS ---
As you can see, it seems to be trying to open it (with fd_open), but
when it sees that it's a directory instead of a file, it simply bombs
out rather than proceeding. The man page entry for "dos filemodes" is
fairly clear that it _should_ work for directories too.
Any ideas? Is this a bug in Samba? (Should it be on samba-technical?)
[ PS. For those of you waiting for my script to set ACLs automagically,
never fear; I haven't forgotten, I just haven't had a chance to post it
anywhere. It is coming, honest! :) ]
