[Samba] Samba Posix ACL and classical files permissions

Well, when i first installed samba without POSIX ACLs, it simply showed 
the classical rwx permissions of the owner, group and others  as the 
corresponding permissions in the "allow" column of the security panel.

I would suggest to consider ACLs if present, otherwise to show the 
classical permissions, which i think reflects the real behavior in linux.

Am i wrong?
