I tried to cd into the directory and failed, no gui application could access 
the directory either. pw showed I was a member of the group.  I logged in

directory. And once I restarted the KDE session from KDM, the problem went 

Is this normal behaviour? Is there any way around it?

I'm running   5.4-RELEASE-p8 if it make a difference.
