Hi Jeremy,

Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you.

I'll send you the debug log off-list, but from the looks of it there's
an issue with the ACLs.  Samba says I don't have enough access to
delete files, which I could understand, except for the fact that I can
*modify* the file I'm trying to delete.  I would've assumed in this
case that I didn't have write or execute access to the directory,
but as far as I can tell, I do.
