Maybe I'm not reading this right, but I think that is how it is supposed 
to work.

When you define which users can access a share that is checked when they 
attempt to connect, file system ACLs will only come in to play after the 
user has been granted access to the share.

So are you trying to grant Fred (for example) access to the files, even 
though he isn't a member of "MY\Domain Users" (probably a bad example 
since all users are likely to be in that group)?
