R. David Murray <rdmurray at bitdance.com> added the comment:

Having just reread this issue more carefully, my understanding is that Ronald had elected to make the results returned from os.getgroups match that returned by "system tools" (by which I understood him to mean the 'id' command).  Since Ronald reports he sees the intended behavior, Stephen's results seem to show that there is a problem with the fix in some circumstances which need to be understood.

Alexander noted that this should all be documented, and I agree, so I'm opening a new issue for the doc update.
