I had the same problem in the beginning and it was
trivial but I can't recollect now what it was exactly.

Try to be logical. Go to the linux side and set a
couple of real ACLs on a file visible from a Samba
share. Check them with getfacl and see how they look
from the client's POV.

I hope other posters will help too. But you are
best suited to debug the problem.
