Re: [Bacula-devel] bacula ACL restore errors when replace=never

This sounds like a bug to me and probably should be reported in the bugs 
database.  That said, it would be good to try to isolate what is going on 
here as much as possible because we currently don't have much spare time, 
which means that if you can pinpoint the problem we can probably fix it 
quickly, but if we need reproduce the problem and research what is going 
wrong, it will need to wait a bit.

Best regards,
