sshd checks the supplemental group ids by using getgrouplist. Is it
possible that your system doesn't return those (eg if the data source
isn't listed in nsswitch.conf?)

Not exactly. Once you have either of AllowUsers or AllowGroups then
the entire list of that type of directive will be checked before any
login not matching at least one rule of that type is denied.
So it's a logical OR within types and a logical AND across types. That's
why I suggested using two AllowGroups directives in my follow-up post.

Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
