The processing of security on shares and security
in the underlying file system are completely separate.

A user who is only granted "read" access on a share
should not be able to change permissions on a directory
inside the share, as this is a write operation on an
underlying directory.

An "admin" user should be able to change such permissions
at will, as they have full root access to the exported

Can you explain a little more clearly what you are trying
to do (sorry, but I've been a little distracted by other
things at the moment) so I can understand if you are describing
a bug or not ?
