In our organization, this is not always true: the primary group name may be spelled differently
from the user name due to various reasons, including historical as well as mergers and acquisitions.
For example, wsadmin:wsadming

something like a RUN_AS_GROUP).

Can you crate a JIRA ? That would help us traking the pb and be sure not
to forget to fix this.

Thanks !
