login fails: initgroups won't work under yp
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:53 EDT
A user with multiple groups in yp can't login thru gdm, root cannot
'su - username' to this user either.
GDM error messages:

Jan 19 11:31:07 alecto automount: attempting to mount entry

failed for olsen. Aborting.

olsen a member of?
assigned to nalin
