I am unable to reproduce your problem (on NT4).
You only sent us the output of mkgroup, but not what's actually in /etc/group..

Does it occur also if you build /etc/group without the -u ?
Also why do you specify -o 0 ? It's not the cause of your problem but
as you noticed you then have two different Windows groups (sid #) with
the same gid.
Can you telnet in? If so, what is the output of id?

You are welcome to send me your /etc/group file if you wish (as an attachment),
I will try it here.
