This sound a bit like the good old NFS problem, where a user with two
many group memberships do not get the privileges he is supposed to
have.  It is a defect of the NFS v2 protocol, and there is a hard
limit on 16 groups.  Users with more group membership will appear to
not be a member of some of the groups.  Could this be the problem
here?  'id' as the user would show the group membership.  You can also
use wireshart to snoop on the NFS traffic to check if the correct
groups are passed on to the NFS server.

Happy hacking,
