Description Josh Bressers 2005-02-10 16:48:05 EST
When starting xntpd with the -u option and specifying the group
by using a string not a numeric gid the daemon uses the gid of
the user not the group.

        # rcxntpd start
        # ps -C ntpd -o comm,pid,ruser,euser,rgroup,egroup
        verify given and real IDs

This issue affects the ntpd we ship with FC

I checked only (int sw_gid - initialization/setting):

An update for FC3 was released so ERRATA is the proper resolution here as this
