I've to bring this up again (as an info). I just tried to restore some
files (part of an samba share) and noticed that the extended
attributes were not backed up. The ACLs were restored fine, but ea
not. Samba can store Windows ACLs into an extended attribute.

org. file:

# getfattr 164_971FK019_20071029_035200.tgz 
# file: 164_971FK019_20071029_035200.tgz

After restore:

# getfattr 164_971FK019_20071029_035200.tgz

The files are stored on a xfs filesystem (linux), but I guess it'd be
the same with ext3. As workaround I can save the ea with 'getfattr
