This is actually a separate (non-ACL) issue. It's not a bug in
the ACL code. I reproduced it last night and am preparing a 
response - the problem is the DOS attributes code sees it as
read-only. Do a attrib <filename> command from a Windows client
and you'll see +r at the attribute. It's not strictly a Samba
bug, more a design issue.

I'm at LinuxConfAu at the moment but 2619 isn't a real bug
as if you typed "attrib -r <filename>" it would fix the problem.
