The patch you're quoting only raises the size of the buffers so that
even the biggest ACL fits into them.  So far we were restricted to 3K
ACLs in some circumstances.  However, there's another change in this
snapshot which might explain what happens:

  * (get_file_sd): Add bool parameter justcreated.  Use
  GetSecurityInfo only if justcreated is true, NtQuerySecurityObject
  otherwise.  Add comment to explain why.  Don't waste time to call
  NtQuerySecurityObject twice, just allocate big enough area.
  (get_file_attribute): Call get_file_sd with justcreated set to false.

I don't see at all how this is possible, though.  Hmm.

I'm still running the installation myself, but it takes such a long
