NTFS junction points and permission (ACL) inheritance do not play along (Windows 2003 Server / XP 64 bit)

Not a nice thing to have when number of disks exceeds number of letters in Latin alphabet :(

It also seems that setting up permissions for the root of the disk at the junction point fails miserably – the only solution seems to be creation of a folder at the root of that disk and give it permissions.
