The Admin group is a BUILTIN group, so it's always +Administrators
under the default prefixing rule, as outlined in my preliminary

And it works fine for me with the latest from CVS (== latest snapshot),
I just tested it.

If I add

  AllowGroups +Administrators

I can still login with my admin account and get a refusal when logging
in with a non-admin account.

In contrast, If I add

  DenyGroups +Administrators

it's the opposite.

Are you, by any chance, using a non-English OS version?  You know that
the administrators group has a localized name, right?  In german, for
instance, it's called Administratoren.
