New submission from Antoine Pitrou <pitrou at free.fr>:

I get the following test_posix failures when run as root (Mandriva Linux):

======================================================================
ERROR: test_initgroups (test.test_posix.PosixGroupsTester)
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/antoine/py3k/__svn__/Lib/test/test_posix.py", line 418, in test_initgroups
    g = g2 + 1
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'g2' referenced before assignment

======================================================================
FAIL: test_setgroups (test.test_posix.PosixGroupsTester)
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/antoine/py3k/__svn__/Lib/test/test_posix.py", line 428, in test_setgroups
    self.assertListEqual(groups, posix.getgroups())
AssertionError: First sequence is not a list: range(0, 16)


Under 2.6, there's another failure:

======================================================================
ERROR: test_setgroups (test.test_posix.PosixGroupsTester)
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/antoine/cpython/26/Lib/test/test_posix.py", line 356, in test_setgroups

AttributeError: 'PosixGroupsTester' object has no attribute 'assertListEqual'
