[Samba] force unknown acl user = yes

According to testparm, this line (force unknown acl user = yes) has no
affect on the configuration. Testparm always returns

force unknown acl user = 00

Is this config option only for Samba 3.0? (I have 2.2.8a).

I'm wondering because it sounds like it fixes a problem I'm having:

(from man 5 smb.conf)

Try using this parameter when XCOPY /O gives an ACCESS_DENIED error.

But it doesn't seem to have an affect.

I can set (force unknown acl user = 01) and change what testparm reports,
but it doesn't seem to do anything.
