[Samba] Samba4 user mapping into filesystem

I have Samba 4.0.0alpha17 installed, running as a PDC for my small
home network. Everything works great, but I'm noticing something odd.
When a user creates a file, it's created with a non-existent owner on
the filesystem. The group is OK.
The problem is that when I set ACL's from a Windows computer, the
files with that owner can't be changed (i.e., Windows gives a
'retry/continue/cancel" dialog). If I change those files to
root:users, I can set ACL's on them all day long.
I've searched all over and can't find out any clues as to why this is
happening, or how to correct it.
- What underlying filesystem permissions, owner and group should I set
for files/directories in a Samba share?
- Should I/Can I force the owner/group and permissions on newly created files?
- Why are new files created with a non-existent user in the first place?
- Ubuntu 11.10 (server)
- Underlying filesystem is a mix of EXT3 and EXT4 (EXT3 FS has xattrs
enabled and working)
- Not using UNIX users; the users are all in the internal Samba database
- Samba runs as root
- My smb.conf file is using a bare minimum of options; just enough to
define shares and set some service information
Thanks for your help.
