[Samba] samba 3.0.4 problem in getting userlist to set acls on
prajjwal at wlink.com.np

I have a samba 3.0.4 pdc compiled with acl support built in, and the
following options configured at compile time:
./configure --with-acl-support --with-smbclient --with-sm
bmount --with-quota --with-ads --with-tdbsam
I am just trying to provide acl support to my users, and I know that
acls are working properly on the linux machine (setfacl and getfacl work
superbly!). Samba acl support is compiled in properly (as verified by
smbd -b | grep -i acl). Still, I am having a very strange problem.
If a file has acls set on it in linux itself, the owner or root can
modify these permissions, and they are properly set in the linux machine.
However, if I try to add an existing user, I am unable to get my
Windows XP professional box ( my test computer) to recognize even users
that it has listed in the acls. Any attempt to try and add users starts
with a dialog asking me to provide a username and password with
modification privileges on the domain, and when I do so, the dialog
hangs for around 5 minutes till it finally informs me that multiple
connections to a shared resource are not allowed, and if I want to do
so, I should disconnect all previous connections and reconnect again.
This happens even when I am logged in as root.
I have not found any answer while going through mailing list archives.
I know my problem must be some fundamental mistake I've made, but I
haven't been able to figure it out so far. I've got detailed logs for
log levels 2, 5, and 10 for the various stages of the process, but I
dont want to add them to this already long mail unless someone wants to
have a look at them.
I'm completely confused, and would appreciate any help at all.
Thanks in advance
