hmm...well, i just tried various setups where the group name had to add
folks based on their primary group (/etc/passwd) and/or the secondary
groups (/etc/group).  this was with 8.1.10 as well as 8.1.11.

a couple things.  first, did you build the new version using the same
flags as the old?  (in case there's *something* that might have changed)
is there any other type of change the might have occurred?

if that doesn't shed any light, we'll have to get a lot of details on
how it's failing.  there isn't really any debug statements in that chunk
of code, unfortunately.  tracing the code (strace/truss/whatever) might
be necessary, to make sure it's calling getgrnam(), etc.

bottom line...this *should* be working.  i suppose the other possibility
is that the config file is begin parsed differently.  a 'conserver -S
-D' (and any other appropriate args) would be useful for that (to see
how the access lists were built).
