Steps to Duplicate:
This TID assumes that USER1 is on PO1, RES resource is on PO1 and USER3 is on PO2
  1. Ensure that USER1 has a full proxy access to the resource "RES"
  2. Ensure that USER1 has full proxy access to USER2 on PO2.
  3. As logged in GW client as USER1 on PO1, create a folder under cabinet and share it with resource RES on PO1 as well as with USER3 on PO2. For example: USER1 has shared a folder TEST with RES and USER3.
  4. Create subfolder under this TEST. For example: SUBTEST. Share this sub-folder with RES and USER3
  5. When RES and USER3 accepts the received shared notifications, the folders are created under cabinet one below another.
  6. As USER1, place a test file FILE1 in TEST folder and FILE2 in the SUBTEST folder

    Result: When User1 proxies into RES resource on PO1, both the shared files are seen. However, when proying into USER3 no shared files are seen. If the USER3 logs in as self then both the files are seen (i.e: FILE 1 in TEST and FILE2 in SUBTEST folder)
