I understand how the acls should work. My issue seem to be more of a bug.

For example:
If I have the following setup...

# owner: root
# group: root

The other permission shows up in windows as the everyone acl having 
read. But If I uncheck the read permission, it just comes back. That is 
the problem. It should allow me to uncheck the read acl for everyone to 
perform the equivalent to "chmod o-r" but it does not work. After 
unchecking read for everyone, and hitting apply, the permission just 

If I run chmod o-r from solaris, samba shows the proper permissions 
(everyone has nothing selected) and honors it. So something is broken 
with the implementation of the everyone acl.

As a side note, I am able to add and remove acl's for other users and 
set their permissions just fine. It is just the everyone acl that seems 
to be special.

Any ideas?
