I'm adding a user to the Master Group project, this only affects the default
groups and not any that have been created through the web interface.
It just keeps loading and loading untill you stop it or the execution time
times out.

My understanding is that in the initial setup the default users/groups
from the SQL database are put into ldap by means of the
script, this means (without that portion of code) that there are no cvsGroup
entries for the default groups, but if a project is created through the web
interface it creates the cvsGroup entries correctly.
This also affects those that need for some reason to regenerate their ldap

This was more a thought than anything else, I'm just wondering why we need
cvsGroup entries for a non-cvs project?

Correct me if I'm wrong but that backend script is also used to initialize
the ldap database at setup.

The problem in the web interface is caused by the missing cvsGroup entries,
after changing the backend script I ran update, then the
cvsGroup entries were correct in ldap and the problem was fixed.  And yes,
I did try to run the update before changing the script without any luck.
