[Samba] still ACL bug in 3.0.14a

I can confirm this bug for 3.0.11 as well. We are treating the unix 
permissions as a mask for the ACLs at the moment, otherwise we end up 
with readonly files etc etc.

I think Peters impression is correct: unix permissions get checked first 
and if no 'normal' user has access rights ACL's doe not get checked.

I'll try to get a log file for this if I can get around to setup a test

tried it, makes no difference here.  I'm neither using "force group" nor
using Solaris.  Sorry to confuse you, there are probably two different
problems in the same thread, although the subject is valid for both.
But as the Solaris issue seems to be resolved, maybe you could
have a look at my bug report:
The bug report includes exact instructions how to reproduce it.
I get the impression that the acl implementation is wrong.  It looks
to me that if any user doesn't have write permission then the
group settings are ignored.
Jeremy, if you create such a file, do you get correct behaviour?
