[Gluster-users] group write permissions not being respected

Another piece of data.  There are 2 distinct volumes on the file server

 1. a straight nfs partition
 2. a gluster volume (served over nfs)

The straight nfs partition does respect the group write permissions, 
while the gluster volume does not.  Any suggestions on how to debug this 
or what additional information would be helpful would be greatly appreciated
