It seems that there has been a change in operation, and requires that
the user must be of the correct group ID to change the group.
Unfortunately some programs assume if getuid()=geteuid()=0 then they can
set the group ID of the file with chown(). Is this new operation? It
seems that 2.1.35 didn't have this change...
