is there a group limit for NFS exported file systems in recent kernels?
One if my users cannot access directories that belong to a group he actually _is_ a
member of. That, however, is true only when accessing them over NFS. On the local file
system, everything is fine. UIDs and GIDs are the same on client and server, so that
cannot be the problem. Client and server run Gentoo Linux with kernel 2.6.16 on the
server and 2.6.17 on the client.

Is he a member of more than 16 groups?
