this basically is the solution for the problem, in fact. I am attaching a 
patch that fixes most of the problems described in my original posting (and 
in the bug ticket).

I still have a problem, though:

When creating directories, the internal "extract" flag always is false, 
independently of whether the directory was in fact created, or whether it did 
already exist. The "makepath" function in findlib does not return information 
about whether it created any paths. Due to this, we can only _always_ or 
_never_ set directory ACLs during restore. I chose "always", but that means 
that "replace=never" restores overwrite already existing ACLs.

I am not 100% sure about other constraints of directory ACLs; there still may 
be issues.

The patch is restricted to ACLs; other stream types as restored in restore.c 
probably have similar concerns, but I did not check that.

Feel free to use the patch; you have my signed FLA.

Thx & best regards
