Hi Colin, Hi Jeremy
I don't think it's so oddball. We also use nss for our rfc2307 mappings 
from the S4 directory for Linux clients joined to the domain. It works 
perfectly via NFS to Linux but acls on shares on s3fs between Linux and 
windows are not quite right.

Colin: Are you talking about setting an acl on windows and it being 
honoured by Linux and vica versa?

Jeremy: are you saying that acl mappings 'both ways' only work with winbind?

If so, a big +1 from me to get the 'both' ways working. Very desirable. 
Maybe this will get easier when we can put stuff like create mode= and 
force group= in smb.conf.
