[Samba] Samba 3.6 directory ACLs

I have ACLs working for files with the following set in my share

inherit permissions = yes

inherit acls=yes

map acl inherit=yes

vfs_objects = acl_tdb


While testing my Samba configuration, I found that permissions are being set
to 'special' for directories being copied from Windows instead of the ACL
being fully populated.  Does Samba 3.6 fully implement ACLS, or are there
further configuration steps for storing the ACL information for directories?


Note, I have used a TDB for ACLs since I have extended attributes enabled on
the file system level to store timestamp information.
