You may want to compare the ACLs displayed for a windows created directory to one created by linux, using samba-tool ntacl. You may want to create an ACL on linux to prevent the crash. Nevertheless, Samba should not return anything to the client that causes clients to crash, but maybe an ACL that just contains SYSTEM.

No, there isn't a Samba bug, it is just that Samba has never used the 
same ACL's for Sysvol as the ones that Windows uses.

I tried to fix this once, but failed because the ntacl C code didn't 
know all the Windows users (or was it groups?)
