'id -gn' is what will have produced the error.  The id output does not show a
group name for ID 680.

Is that a NIS group?
Comment 3 Greg Marsden 2005-02-25 13:38:26 EST
Yes, it's NIS. If the group is local it works fine.
Comment 4 Jakub Jelinek 2005-03-30 10:05:22 EST
Please attach output of
ltrace id
strace id
Are you using nscd?  If yes, can you reproduce it also without nscd
(service nscd stop)?
