Description David Shaw 2007-11-11 14:44:42 UTC
Using 3.0.26a, I was unable to delete a file with mode 0400 through a SMB mount.
I do have "delete readonly" set.

I tracked this down to nttrans.c:reply_ntcreate_and_X() where there is a readonly
test to determine whether can_delete_file_in_directory() is called or not.
Unfortunately, there is no lp_delete_readonly check to disable the readonly test.
