	It´s not the problem.
	I have two large groups, one of them have more then 500 users in
it. It´s is used by a legacy radius software to authenticate the users.
	The poblem is that beyond some position in the group list the
system doesn´t show the user in that group. i.e:

	The user "nonono" is listed in one of those groups, but the
comand:  id nonono doesn´t show that group. Another user at the begining
of the group is ok.
