[Gluster-users] ACLs only apply to primary group?

I wonder if someone confirm this behaviour or point out my obvious
mistake - gluster mounts via the native (fuse) client don't seem to
work properly with POSIX ACLs, example:

[jim at puppet ~]$ ls -la /mnt/
total 24
drwxr-xr-x   4 root root 4096 Feb 16 16:49 .
dr-xr-xr-x  23 root root 4096 Feb 17 10:32 ..
drwx-----x   3 root root 4096 Feb 15 03:00 arccontent
drwxrwx--x+  5 root root 4096 Feb 16 13:55 webcontent

Two gluster file systems mounted, one mounted with ACL support.

[jim at puppet ~]$ getfacl /mnt/webcontent/
getfacl: Removing leading '/' from absolute path names
# file: mnt/webcontent/
# owner: root
# group: root

Fairly straightforward permissions but anyone in the webadmins group
should get rwx on everything below the mount point.

[jim at puppet ~]$ groups
jim wheel webadmins

[jim at puppet ~]$ ls -la /mnt/webcontent/
ls: cannot open directory /mnt/webcontent/: Permission denied

[jim at puppet ~]$ sudo setfacl -R -m group:jim:rwx /mnt/webcontent

Add permissions for primary group

[jim at puppet ~]$ ls -la /mnt/webcontent/
total 52
drwxrwx--x+ 5 root root  4096 Feb 16 13:55 .
drwxr-xr-x  4 root root  4096 Feb 16 16:49 ..
drwxrwx--x+ 3 root root  4096 Feb 15 15:19 httpd
drwxrwx---+ 2 root root 16384 Feb  9 16:52 lost+found
-rw-rwxr--+ 1 root root     0 Feb 16 13:55 moo
drwxrwx--x+ 2 root root  4096 Feb 15 23:25 test

And my user can read the directory.

I was having problems with FUSE disallowing other users other than the
mounted user earlier on glusterfs-3.2.5-6.el6.x86_64 but that doesn't
seem to be the case on glusterfs-3.2.5-7.el6.x86_64 (or another update
made the difference). As an interesting addition, mtab doesn't report
acl support on the mountpoint:

gluster1:/gluster-webcontent on /mnt/webcontent type

Any suggestions for what to try next would be most appreciated.
