As Kris commented, the games group doesn't normally have any
significant privileges, so we don't consider bugs of this sort
to be major security problems (it's not really an _elevation_
of privileges to become gid games). On the other hand, these
are certainly bugs which should get fixed.
If you have any details about these, please forward them to
secteam at freebsd.org so that we can investigate.
