FYI. I've just committed a "jumbo" ACL patch for v3-6-test (and am currently
looking at backporting this to 3.5.x) which I hope will fix several issues
with storing ACLs in xattrs and getting full Windows ACL compatibility.

I'll ping the lists when I want wider testing (still ensuring it all
works at the moment).
