samba with acl problem [user listing doesnot works]

i am trying to implement samba with acl.
i compiled samba with acl and my 2.4.25 kernel in rh7.3 with acl + ea
everything works fine with acl manipulation.
but in winxp client computer when i try to add user in security tab it doesnot get listed.that is samba users in linux side does not get listed in winxp side.

have you mounted your partitions with "acl"-options?
I have following fstab:
/dev/sda6       /var            ext3    defaults,acl    0       2

I have set up samba-3.0.4 with acls and there was some issues, i think I had to do:
right-click Properties->Security-->Advanced and add user accounts/groups from that window, NOT from that "security" tab.

This was quite confusing for windows-users so I had to change server to windows 2k :(
I don't know if samba 3.0.8 can do better with acl:s.
