I just made some quick tests and indeed smbcacls does show the ACLs 
stored by the vfs module. I suppose the problem here was the lack of 
documentation. There's always this gap between programmers and end users...

Still, I think that both pdbedit and smbcacls need some attention from 

Thank you for your answers and your work in general. I applied the "ACL 
jumbo patch" to Samba 3.5.6 and will be testing the coming days.
