Hmm really need more info here, but from what you posted:
Folder A will allow 'root' to do anything, any member of 'g3' can do
anything, 'others' can enter the folder and read what is in there.
What I think is happening is that when 'user1' modifies the file, it
then belongs to user1:g1, 'user2' comes along and can get into the
folder, once in the folder 'user2' being in 'g1' will be able to modify
the file (group gets rwx), so to stop this, change the access mode to
770. With this setting, only 'root' and members of 'g3' will be able to
get into the directory in the first place
