I can't reproduce it.
Why do u use release 56. I thought there is release #37 in fc3?

$rpm -qi shadow-utils
Name        : shadow-utils                 Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version     : 4.0.3                             Vendor: (none)
Release     : 57                            Build Date: Fri 18 Feb 2005 09:48:26 
# useradd -G rat Dezo
# cat /etc/gshadow | grep Dezo

I think i have already fount it. There must be a bug somewhere in
shadow-4.0.3-maxmem.patch. Release #57(from devel) doesn't include this patch,
that was the reason it has worked for me.

Will this be added as an update for Fedora Core 3?  I hope so.
