Description Artur Szymczak 2011-10-13 11:33:52 EDT
Description of problem:

I added my user to group 'wheel'. But it seems that it doesn't belong to this group.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. usermod -a -G wheel artur
2. id artur
3. grep artur /etc/group
Actual results:
# usermod -a -G wheel artur
# id artur
uid=1000(artur) gid=1000(artur) groups=1000(artur)
# grep artur /etc/group

Expected results:
# usermod -a -G wheel artur
# id artur
uid=1000(artur) gid=1000(artur) groups=1000(artur),10(wheel)
# grep artur /etc/group

Thanks for report. Command id/groups just uses getgroup(2) from glibc. Btw. your steps to reproduce are incomplete - please read info documentation for id/group - "Primary and supplementary groups for a process are normally inherited
from its parent and are usually unchanged since login.  This means that
if you change the group database after logging in, `groups' will not
reflect your changes within your existing login session." - so before the logout/login, that's perfectly ok and documented behaviour.

Anyway, it seems that glibc is now a bit buggy, there are more such reports... closing as duplicate of glibc bug.
