[Samba] Wrong ACL in subdir

I've noticed the following ACL problem in a newly created subfolder:

Let a folder have full rights for the owner, no rights for the primary 
group, no rights for everyone, no further rights defined. Add, from 
WinXP, an ACL for another user with Read&Execute rights and the option 
"This folder only".

Now create a subfolder: in the new subfolder, the parent group has "Full 
control" although it had no rights in the parent.

In the log I can find the entry
change_dir_owner_to_parent: device/inode/mode on directory ... changed. 
Refusing to chown !

Happens with Samba 3.2.7, 3.3.5, 3.3.6 (no other versions tested)

Details on this are in https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6507
