Last I looked at this, SGE only considered the "primary group" of a
user in the @unixgroup notation.  "Supplementary groups" were
ignored.  Maybe you fell into that trap?

(I seem to remember the reason should be some efficiency problems.
That sounds a bit strange to me, it's not that many groups to look up
for a user.  But I haven't looked closer.)
