Not sure about this, but mostly irrelevant anyway, because of this 
effect in the other direction:

If you have set Windows ACLs, and then change unix permissions or acls, 
this will destroy the Windows ACLs. Changing owner or group from within 
Linux also has this side effect. For this reason it is better to use 
only Linux permissions (mode bits and acls), or only Windows ACLs, but 
not try to mix both.
