The more or less usual version update as you already mentioned.

What filesystem are you using?

And which mount options are active?  Type mount to display them.

Have you read the hint provided by SWAT?  SWAT should report 'More
documentation is available at this point if you install the samba-doc
package.'  As soon as you've installed samba-doc you'll have the links
to the documentation.

See /usr/share/samba/swat/help/  welcome-no-samba-doc.html is shown if
welcome.html isn't installed and welcome.html and the other
documentation files are packaged in the samba-doc subpackage.

Remove this ...

... as you have inherit acls which is what you want.

That looks fine.

Can you please test your setup with the 3.0.21a packages from
ftp.SuSE.com/pub/projects/samba/3.0/ or
download.Samba.org/samba/ftp/Binary_Packages/SuSE/3.0/ and file a defect
at bugzilla.Samba.org or bugzilla.Novell.com and asssign the bug to
lmuelle @ Samba.org or SuSE.de
