Thanks for the answer.

To be sure i ran the test on a virtual machine in order to avoid any 
problem or operator (me) mistake on the productive server. I spent like 
the entire afternoon and part of the morning on the issue.

Then, fed up, i tried it on the production server and it works!!!

I don't know why exactly, since i double checked all the services on the 
VM, flushed samba cache, and so on. I also tested permission on the file 
system to check correct group ownership. But cvsnt acls didn't work.

Thanks a lot for the support anyway, i will keep your script for future 
problems (they'll never miss).
