Angel... you are the man !

It works great, even on XP SP2 when I follow your trick ! It is not a Samba 
bug because the problem is the same with a Windows standalone server. 
IMHO it is not a bug, but well a feature to force you to buy Windows servers.

I was a bit surprised by the number of answers/comments (exactly 0) I 
received when I exposed the problem years ago. Either nobody knew the 
answer, either nobody wanted to answer, either nobody used standalone 
servers (with ACLs). But in my case that is still used in some situations.

Thank you so much, I spent days on this problem and then surrendered.
