(Thanks for your reply, Harry)

We don't, actually: I read those instructions and, since our NETLOGON
share is not generally writeable and our Samba isn't configured to use
ACLs, those permissions wouldn't apply when following the recipe as
described in the link above.  Nowhere I've read suggests that the
ownership setting is *critical*: our NETLOGON share presents as
read-only guest, in effect.

Do you think the ownership is critical and that Windows is rejecting the
use of 'Default User.v2' simply because it can't ascertain that it's
"EVERYONE"-owned, despite the fact that it could read it if it tried?!

(I admit I side-stepped this part of the process and hoped it wouldn't
matter, since reconfiguring Samba to allow this type of change would be
potentially disruptive!)
