Here you go:

bash-3.00# /usr/local/samba/sbin/smbd -b | grep ACL

It looks plausible to me, but I'm assuming you know better than I what
it should say.  Also, I did just check, and that is the binary that the
init script is starting.  If I've done something stupid again, it isn't
that ;-)

What does "smbd -b | grep ACL" say?
