userA has read access via an extended acl to a particular directory;
userB has read access via an extended acl to that same directory;
userA granted read access via nfs;
userB granted read access via nfs;
userA granted read access via samba;
userB denied read access via samba;
i.e. Sometime it works, sometimes it doesn't...
So I guess the question is: where to start to diagnose extended acl issues? I apologize for my ignorance, but this is the original question.

Unfortunately a bug report of "Sometimes it works, sometimes not.." is
about as useful as "my car is broken, what's wrong ?".
You need to be specific.
