Hi Baptiste
You _are_ getting as perfect-as-the devs-can-get perfect unix
compatibility given the limitations of the mapping impossibility between
the file systems.

I don't think you'll get a specific answer here. I know of only one dev
who could answer. You could try on samba-technical and you _may_ get a
response. A subject such as, 'unix acl <-> ntacl mapping not working'
may just get a bite.
