Yes it is
I had a working Samba 2.0.7 few years ago, and yes I had problems with 
extended rights. Fortunately I haven't ever had AD /NT4 DOMControlers on 
production systems.
As probably anybody else from this list I would suggest an upgrade to 
Samba 3.0.13 as big lots of bugs performance problems have been fixed 
since 2.2.8. In fact the 2.x.y branch is no longer maintained.
