Hi all,

I don't consider this a big issue, but want to throw it out there.
I noticed when I ran the new Shadow 'groupmems' program, it segfaults.

I didn't think to much about it at the time as this program is new
to Shadow and the man page says you must create a special group and
set the program with GID permissions (2775) which I didn't do.

However, looking at the console, I see the actual errors produced by
the segfault. Wondering if anyone can make anything from this:

groupmems[13783]: segfault at 72657375 ip b7feb18b sp bf8eac2c error 4 in[b7f79000+13a000]
groupmems[13823]: segfault at 72657375 ip b7fa118b sp bfea11dc error 4 in[b7f2f000+13a000]
groupmems[13824]: segfault at c ip 0804975f sp bfbb6780 error 4 in groupmems[8048000+5000]
