Permissions for all directories along the path are drwx-xr-x.

I have a strong feeling that this is the reason, because the group I'm appears at position 19 in the output of the "groups" command. I'll show this answer to the sys admin and see if it helps. :)

File system appears to be nfs4. namei gives me / and home belonging to root, root. /home/username belonging to username and group X (of which I am not a member), then the rest is /home/username/path1/path2/file where path1 belongs to username and group X, and path2 belongs to username, and group A, of which I'm a member.

The weird thing is, I can see the files of another user belonging to group B, of which I'm also a member...

No, that wasn't the problem; I logged out and back in and that didn't resolve it.

Nope, there's no special ACL, it just repeats what the standard flags tell me, and id -a tells me that I am in that file's group
