  In fact, you're right. I used only the "g+s" file mode and it worked for  
both UFS and ZFS. Sorry for the confusion.

  Maybe ZVOL will be sufficient? It just works:

# zfs create -V 1g tank/tmp/test1
# newfs /dev/zvol/tank/tmp/test1
# mkdir /tmp/test1
# mount -o suiddir /dev/zvol/tank/tmp/test1 /tmp/test1
# mkdir /tmp/test1/user1dir
# chmod 4777 /tmp/test1/user1dir
# chown user1:user1 /tmp/test1/user1dir
# su - user2
$ cd /tmp/test1/user1dir
$ touch test
$ ll test
-rw-------  1 user1  user1  - 0 Dec 21 00:14 test
