Folder ACL permissions of samba shares not visible under Windows

Last Modified: 2013-12-09
From Windows systems permissions for directories of samba share are not listed in the Properties window (as in the attached pic) only if the permissions were set from  Windows, not using setfacl command from Ubuntu. Permissions for the files are displayed correctly. Is there any setting that should be enabled to make permissions visible from Windows too? Everything is working fine, but permissions for folders cannot be overviewed from Windows. Any help is welcome, thank you!

The acl related settings in smb.conf are:
#### acl settings ######
   acl compatibility = win2k
   nt acl support = yes
   inherit permissions = yes
   inherit acls = yes
   map acl inherit = yes
