When you run 'qconf -sconf', look under execd_params.  Is 'USE_QSUB_GID' 
set?   If its not set, SGE looks at whatever group is defined for your 
using in /etc/passwd (or nis or ldap, or whatever you're using).  If the 
option is set to true, then SGE looks at your active group when you run 
qsub to determine your group.   SGE never looks at any of the other 
groups you might be in.
