Probably your Samba or kernel version is too old.  This has nothing to
do with ACLs.  Either Samba isn't monitoring files for changes (upgrade
Samba) or the required facility isn't available (kernel too old.)  I
think the code has been in the kernel for a long time, so probably a
Samba upgrade is in order.

FWIW I used to have this issue on Samba 3.0.x but not any more on 3.2.x.
