Sorry, maybe I got a bit confused - didn't mean to :-)
I replied to your previous entry just now.

It turns out that I can get the same info from Windows with:
Cmd> gpresult /R
And I have 83 items in my security group list - so 83 is correct.

Just did it for 1.7.35-0.2 - I haven't seen 0.3 turn up at a mirror site yet.
