frankly that happens even when "nt acl support = no" is set

you don't see the permissions tab on windows explorer, but if you copy a 
file from a win7 desktop to a smb share the resulting permissions are 
chosen by god and then you even hae no way to fix it execpt delete the 
file from the share, give "everyone" permissions on the local file and 
upload it again

"nt acl support = no" is a clear indication of "dear client shut up"
