[Samba] AD: Using SyncThing for sysvol replication

Last I checked, syncthing does not (did not) preserve ACLs, and instead
overwrote permissions as the executing user.

Since it is meant to be a user-space program (like bittorrent?  I'm out of
the loop), it assumes that the syncthing user should own everything
transferred.  You can still run as root, but ACLs are mangled appropriately.

I think Tranquil IT gets around it by running sysvolreset as a posthook,
but YMMV.  Personally, I try to avoid sysvolreset if not necessary.
