	Yup.  This is normal.

	Therein lies the problem.  The RPMs are not set up to use the 
GIDs which you are used to using.  You either need to get different 
RPMs that are configured the way you expect, or rebuild from the 
original source code.

	It sounds like this is another issue that needs to go into the FAQ.
