[GE users] critical error: can't resolve group

It uses the getgrgid_r() call to resolve the name of the
primary group of you unprivileged user.

Please read the man page of getgrgid_r() to see how your system resolves 
group names and check if everything is configured right on the 
problematic hosts.

Regards,
Harald
