Actually they do work simultaneously, it's only that the group
permission changes meaning completely when using ACLs, and become a mask
itself, the filter access for any other group. It become a restriction
on what is the maximum access granted to any other group.

So when using ACLs, you need to realize that a chmod group is going to
change meaning, that's all.
