Hello nate,

Yes, I use getfacl to see the ACLs but in this case I used a "default ACL" 
that sets "regular permissions" on new files and thus any new file won't have 
actually an ACL. In my case, the new file looks like:

-rw------- 1 joe joe 0 Oct 29 21:14 testFile.txt

If It had any ACL on it... a plus sign would appear at the end of the 
permission bits, like this:

-rw-------+ 1 joe joe 0 Oct 29 21:14 testFile.txt

Best regards,
