I am now even more confused than before!   The WiKi page for setting up the share using Windows ACLs specifically suggests that the 'acl_xattr:ignore system acls = Yes' be added to smb.conf.   And even with that line in smb.conf for the share,  I do get the + at the end of permissions.  All is working fine with my system.   So if the + is missing when this line is in smb.conf does this suggest that the Windows ACLs are not being saved?
