Boy, it's not a good day for my list etiquette. Apologies, folks.

Samba with vfs_glusterfs has a limit of approx. 93 groups. If 'id $USER'

Ahh, great. I am very glad, at least, that this is a known issue and that
it's being addressed.

Well that's a first :).

I will test this against the 3.5.1 release when that is ready. Is the 3.5.1
version of vfs_glusterfs backwards compatible with glusterfs 3.4, or do I
need to upgrade the whole cluster to leverage the new vfs_glusterfs?

Thanks so much,
