[Samba] difference between samba running on solaris 10 and centos 5.5

I believe ZFS uses "NFSv4" Acl's while Ext3 (or UFS)  uses Posix.  
Supposedly the NFSv4 ACL's are closer to Windows.  My experience was 
that ZFS gave more headaches than UFS in conjunction with Samba-   with 
ZFS a perm such as "660" (i.e. user and group can read and write, but 
not rights to anyone ELSE) sometimes got  interpreted by Samba as 
"everyone is denied" which trumped the user and group "allow" ACE's.

What does getfacl show on the file?

What do you see for the permissions and effective permissions under 
Windows?  Are there "Deny" ACE's?  Does windows complain about 
permissions being ordered incorrectly?

I believe that Centos 5.x/RHEL5.x DOES enabled ACL's on Ext3 file 
systems by default.
