This has been logged as a bug (#2249) to be fixed in 6.2u3 although I
don't know when that will be. This can happen if a primary group
contains  a large number of user ids. Here we could get around it by
adding that primary group to /etc/group but with the user list split
over two or more lines by repeating the three initial fields, like
 
name:!:gid:additional_users
name:!:gid:more_additional_users

I'd be interested whether that works in your case

Best wishes

Henk
