I'm using a straight all-debian 64 bit environment and still can't access
despite having group permissions.

I'm having the same problem here.

I use the latest version (3.2.3 build on Aug 23 2011 19:54:51 of the
download site) on a Centos 5.6 as a gluster servers, Debian squeeze (same
version) as client.
I'm refused access to files and directories despite having correct group

So I installed a clean Centos client (also latest version) for a test and
everything is working perfectly .... ?

The used Debian (squeeze) and Centos are 64 bits (repository from
Using Debian testing (64 and 32 bits) and gluster from the Debian repository
also denies me access in 64 and 32 bits version.

I assume the mixed environment explains why this bug is rare. 

The used gluster installation is a basic replicated setup one with two
servers like described in the de Gluster docs.
