As root, I tried every 'groupmems' option, and they all work. I'm using
shadow-220.127.116.11, glibc-2.8-20080908, binutils-18.104.22.168.9, and
A segfault in 'groupmems' was reported at Debian, and fixed in shadow-22.214.171.124.
I do get a segfault if I use a group name that doesn't exist (reported at
Gentoo, not yet fixed from what I see).
