This is probably related to a bug with the handling of
the umask in the XFS/ACL code.
(if a default ACL doesn't exist then xfs incorrectly applies
the umask in the nfsd case)
With ACLs disabled, this bug was fixed in the xfs-kernel
on January 10 2002.
With ACLs enabled, this bug still exists and
possible solutions are currently being discussed.
