I wasn’t initially able to reproduce the issue.

For further reference, according to apps/files_sharing/l10n/fr.php, the
error message was "Sorry, this link doesn’t seem to work anymore." =>
"Désolé, mais le lien semble ne plus fonctionner."

I tried to share a file with another user, share a directory with
another user, and share a directory with a group I and another user
belong to. Each time, the other user was able to share via a public link
the file or any file within the shared directory.

Rereading your report again, I finally managed to reproduce the issue:
A1 shares a directory with group G, but *doesn’t* belong to G, A2 who
belongs to G can see the files, but indeed cannot share thew anymore via
a public link.

I was able to reproduce the issue with version 7.0.5 as available from
experimental, but not with version 8.1.0~beta1 as ready in the VCS and
from p.d.o (see #785052#10), so it will be fixed “soon” in Debian too.
