[Samba] Samba 3.0.14a AFS funkyness

I've been using Samba as an AFS gateway since December 04 and it's  
been working great but I recently deployed a 3.0.14a server and now  
samba isn't honoring AFS acls.  It is enforcing unix mode permissions  
which is completely the wrong behavior in this case.

For example I have a directory with the following unix permissions  
and AFS acl

rwxrwxr--    dharknes    users    testfolder

Access list for testfolder is
Normal rights:
     itsdept rlidwk
     system:administrtors rlidwka

With that setup I will not be able to write to the directory through  
samba even though I'm in the itsdept AFS group.  Samba is generating  
the proper AFS tokens since I can get access to the folder, it just  
wants to enforce file and directory permissions.
