This does not appear to be the case.  Users with write access via user or group ACEs receive an "Access denied" error when attempting to make ACL changes via windows, accompanaied by an "operation not permitted" error in the client's log file on the file server.


make sure your filesystem is mounted with user_xattr:

dev/hda5 / ext3,acl,user_xattr defaults 1 1
