But, it does work -- with the one exception involving node creation that
is the crux of this message. I currently work around this problem by
using node_add directly instead of node/add/<node type>?gids=<group nid>.

No. I'm trying to require that a user have a specific role in a group
that is specific to that group. In another group, he might have the
same role, or he might not.

Restricted to a group, yes, but for whatever node types are available to
1) the group and 1b) the role the user has in the group.

It's possible. That's what I'm trying to find out. I do know that in
order to achieve the functionality I was looking for, I only needed to
modify user_access. This worked for group node listing, viewing,
updating and deleting. Just not creating.

This was a re-post of an original message I posted to the list. The
question was specific to this list. In the future, however, I will take
your advice. Thanks.
