this can happen because of:

- smbd not being built with acl-support (verify by setting ACLs manually using

- a chown failing due to the fact that the owner of that particular file on is a group (and not a user) *and* that the share you are
  copying to on samba has not set the "force unknown acl user" option. If this file is
  owned by a group then set "force unknown acl user = yes" on the samba

- the user "gibbs" cannot set ACLs to files inside that directory due to
  permissions. You could increase the samba log level to find out where it
