As far as I can deduct now (I am not in a position to test it now as I 
needed to downgrade quickly in production - I dont have the luxury of a 
test environment yet :-( ). You could test if the following works/does 
not work:

- Create a directory within a share, which has normal unix permissions 
of 755.
- Add acl's which allow additional groups to write to this directory

Now as user which is different than the owner of the directory but is a 
member of one of the acl-added groups try to create a file in that dir. 
If the bug occurs than you should not be able to do this.
