Your test might expect different behaviour than what OSX actually does (this is an annoying limitation of unittests for wrappers of system behaviour, you'll implicitly test system behaviour as well as the wreappers themselves)

The behaviour w.r.t. secondairy groups is rather different than what I'd expect on a Unix system.
