> Can we see your entire smb.conf, sanitised if you must.

Found it! Decided to go over the config and sanitise it, but also toggle
all the options that I wasn't certain of to see if they were relevant.

If I comment out the following, then the file is group owned g_alice -
with it there, it's 'domain users':

vfs objects = acl_xattr

No idea if this is expected behaviour though - from reading the docs it
sounds like this is a setting we would want to have, but I'm more than
happy to be told we don't need it and to leave it off!
