Hi Steve, hi all,

Thank you for your reply.

We are Redhat customers and to track this bug, I created that :
but I doubt this may be publicly accessible (according to what I 
understand, *you* will be able to read it, but anyway, this is a Cc of 
my primary mail). I will add details (kernel, gfs2 version, etc...)

Ambiguity for me is that here, I'm using Redhat products (ctdb, GFS2, 
cman suite) on an Ubuntu server. But I sincerely doubt this makes a 
difference : the issue here lies on GFS2 (I strongly suppose).

Yes, this has been tested with the same users (root and bob).

PS : I am sincerely astonished this case has not been met before, as the 
GFS2 with ACLs sounded to me quite common, but I may be wrong.
