group sticky is set for the folder. I thought that was the way to get
new files to be set to the correct group...? And I just tried creating
a file, chowning it to another user, then deleting it from my normal
user across the smb connection and it complied without complaint..
anyway, here's the ls -ld:
drwxrwsr-x 2 notme slingers 4096 May 4 10:00 grand-marquis/
Aggravatingly, it effectively does delete the file, by truncating it to
zero size before it barfs.
