Samba - Windows - Delete-Bug

Hi all,

I've got a small problem with my Samba-Server (or my Windows-Version):

I've got a directory that is shared via Samba: (posting out of /etc/samba/smb.conf)
path = /mnt/storage/samba/mp3new
valid users = @smb-user
read only = No

Unix-Permissions on that folder:
drwxrwx--T 2 root smb-user 4096 18. Mär 22:55 mp3new

In this folder is one file for testing: (x.mp3)
-rw-r--r-- 1 admin smb-user 0 18. Mär 22:55 x.mp3

User admin belongs to group smb-user and user testuser belongs to smb-user
as well.

When I access the Samba-Server using the testuser I can "delete" the file,
allthough sticky bit is set and I'm NOT the owner of it. Windows deletes it.
I looked into linux but the file is still available. (logical! - sticky bit is set!)

Then I press i windows in the explorer F5 (to actualize my view) and the
file is there once again! Why do I don't get an error-message, that the file
CAN'T BE deleted like in unix? I tried also to rename the file via windows.
That doesn't worked and I got a error-msg! But "deleting" works... (ok, the file
is still there....)

Any ideas? Guess it's a windoof-bug or I'm too stupid to configure the server

thx for help in advance,

This is a known bug I fixed for the newly release 3.0.12.

Sorry for the problem.
