[Samba] Explanation of ACL inherit in Samba 3.x

i installed a samba server 3.0.28a, with acls support.
when settings acl with setfacl, the mechanism of default acl for parent
are put to new directories/files by the linux kernel. so far so good.
when creating a new file directory with a windows client on the samba
serveur, the new item get the default acl set.
the matter is that when we try to change acl on windows, it
automatically put back the acls by defaut the parent directory tells to
uses for new items.
so we can't remove an acl that the parent enforce.
is that normal ? is there a way to set samba or windows not to do this ?
can't we just rely on the posix acl to handle inheritance of the rights ?
