FW: question regarding id command

I have missed word "not" in my previous email.
" Why the output of id -Gn and id -Gn Sgupta is NOT same , assuming that I
am logged in as Sgupta "


It looks like id  -Gn prints all the groups (Primary, Secondary), if  I put
user name like id -Gn SGupta , it only prints the Primary Group.

Is it true ? According to docmentaion of id command, it should print all
(Primary, Secondary) groups. 
Please let me know, if I am wrong ?

Thanks
Sanjay
