[Samba] ACL/Excel file issue

I have the same issue. Only started happening when I upgraded to 3.0.25b

As a temporary solution I set force security mode = 0770 on the shares
which fixes the problem but is not an ideal solution.

Subject: [Samba] ACL/Excel file issue


I've just upgraded an organisation from 3.0.23a to 3.0.25b on CentOS.

Everything went fine excpet they're having an issue with Excel files 
going RO which perhaps is related to acls.

$ ls foo.xls
-r--rwxr--+ 1 mr.bogus staff 101376 Apr  8 12:59 08-04-04 foo.xls

and getfacl gives:

# owner: mr.bogus
# group: staff

This is the testparm output with extraneous shares pruned out. It's the 
same conf as the old server.
