	I just tried this --

	I was able to add a Domain group, and give it 'full permissions'
on the ACL and save it.

	'RIGHTS' / priviledges work as well...(just tried it)

my user has the 'SETakeOwnershipPrivilege' in the Domain.

Among other things, this allowed me to change a directory that
was owned by root w/permis = rwxr-xr-x, to being owned by me.

As for diffs on Security and Advanced tab -- see MS.
(It's a feature...they don't show the exact same info...but close)...
