ACLs not being properly honored in Samba on Leopard

I'm working with MOSXS 10.5.1 and configuring Samba for filesharing to my Windows users. It seems my Windows users can't write to the root level of the sharepoint, when they should -- by virtue of being in an ACL with full permission.

Let's say I map a drive using the account "its-testuser" on a WinXPSP2 box. When that user tries to create a folder, the folder is successfully created -- but the name can't be change from the default "New Folder". Also, I can drop a file in the share, but I can't rename that, either, once it's dropped. Nor can I delete files or folders at root level, either. *However* once a subfolder has been created (via AFP, say) the daughter files and folders can be fully modifiable, and the ACLs seem to be properly enforced.

Alternatively, if I made the root of the sharepoint 777, everything works. But I can't have that, for pretty obvious reasons.

For example, here's the ls output of my sharepoint (wrapped for easier reading). It was configured via Server Admin.

bash-3.2# ls -lae@
drwxrwx---+ 8 root admin 272 Jan 27 16:44 ITS
0: user:its-testuser allow list,add_file,search,delete,add_subdirectory,
1: group:curators allow list,search,readattr,readextattr,

And here's what the Samba sharepoint looks like:

guest ok=no
inherit permissions=no
directory mask=0771
strict locking=yes
create mask=0644

And if I look at the properties of the mapped drive in WinXP, I can see that its-testuser has full control.

My smb.conf has only the following additions:

        use spnego = no
        use kerberos keytab = no
        store dos attributes = yes
        map archive = no
        map hidden = no
        map system = no
        client NTLMv2 auth = yes

What's going on here?
