Hi samba users and developper,

If a user copy or move a directory from a place to an other place, the ACL 
will be also applied as same as the original place. 
why the ACL is copied and not the directory take default ACL from the 
newer parent's directory.

I explain : 

older place : 
        acl : 
                crdcom  rwx

newer place : 
        acl : 
                crdcom  rwx

must be bufrm and not crdcom

is normal or not.
Could anyone explain this features.

samba 3.2.2
Redhat Enterprise linux 5 with XFS.

share definition : 

        comment = GROUPES
        path = /rsrv/vol2/data1/groupes 
        read only = No
        inherit permissions = Yes
        inherit acls = Yes
        hide unreadable = Yes 

        security mask = 0770
        directory security mask = 0770

        force security mode = 0770
        force directory security mode = 0770
