[Samba] Can new ACL entries be inherited to existing subdirectories.

My samba drive works well on my XP machines and ACLs work fine as well.
XP users can add new user permissions to files and folders and they are 
inherited for all NEW files and folders created in the future.

But, adding a new permission on the security tab to a folder does not 
alter the EXISTING files/sub-folders like it does on a real windows 
network drive.

I am running Samba 3.0.24/25 on Solaris 10/9 machines and here are my 
current settings:

         acl compatibility = auto
         acl check permissions = Yes
         acl group control = No
         acl map full control = Yes
         force unknown acl user = No
         inherit permissions = No
         inherit acls = No
         inherit owner = No
         nt acl support = Yes
         profile acls = No
         map acl inherit = No
