Hi, yes this bug hits us also.
We have a lot of "projects" and "working groups" we organize all of them via unix-groups and access permissions to their folders.

After using glusterfs for our VM-Infrastructure (some call it cloud), we migrated all old nfs-servers to gluster and instantly got hit by this bug. 

Now, we needed to relax our directory permissions from 0770 (usually) to 0775, which is undesired.

Bad bug. It seems to me that this renders the POSIX-compatible feature of gluster void.

Thanks again,
