I noted that the problem didn't exist in unstable.
Is there a way to fix this in stable?
This is blocker and preventing us from supporting additional SCMs at
Savannah.gnu.org, since several users are parts of LOTS of projects,
and hence belong to LOTS of Unix groups :) We currently have a very
unusual CVS setup that works around this bug, but we cannot apply that
trick to other SCMs.
