[Samba] MSWORD problem after upgrade to samba 3.0.14a

Hey all, 

 I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing a problem with Samba


The problems is after the users connects to a samba share and opens msword,
creates a document then does "file|save" 

Then opens the file and makes changes then does "file|save" again, it comes
up and says that the backup copy of the file could not be created and never
actually saves the file.

You have to do "save as" instead.


In msword if you turn off "always save a backup copy" then "file|save" works
with no problem.



This has only happened after upgrading from samba 3.0.10 to 3.0.14a




Samba is a member of a windows 2003 AD. Users connect to the share with
their AD username 



I have set logging up quite high but the only thing that stands out is "

[2005/06/10 16:37:37, 2] smbd/posix_acls.c:set_canon_ace_list(2420)

  set_canon_ace_list: sys_acl_set_file type file failed for file
~WRD1929.tmp (Operation not supported).




Have I overlooked a change I have needed to do since upgrading to 3.0.14a ?
