i gave up with OSX finder and ACL's on Linux machines in 2009

a smart operating system (OSX is not of that kind) would simply try to 
save or open a file and be happy if it was sucessful, Finder is caching 
informations without properly understand them and blocks without ever 
try to save or open something even when it would have all permissions on 
the serverside

the same with Finder and Netatalk

frankly i gave up, stepped back to unix permissions, re-organized 
storage strcutures so that the group has the needed permissions and the 
whole share has the same permissions

"inherit permissions = yes" in smb.conf and you are fine
