Description Ales Kozumplik 2011-10-13 09:14:03 EDT
Description of problem:
This is with the latest F16 beta, fully updated.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. as root: usermod -a -G wheel akozumpl
2. logout, login again as akozumpl
3. $ groups
Actual results:

Expected results:
akozumpl wheel

Additional info:
I did the 'usermod' step yesterday before doing 'yum update'. It was after 'yum update' when 'groups' stopped working correctly (I can still see my name with 'wheel' in /etc/groups).

I don't think it has anything to do with groups command - groups (and id -Gn) is just using getgroups(2) from glibc.
So it might be issue with glibc or shadow-utils - let's try shadow-utils first. Peter, feel free to reassign it if you thing that the issue is on different place.
