Public bug reported:
We are using Ubuntu in a university network with lots of ldap users. To
automatically map ldap users/groups to local groups we are using
pam_group.so. This has worked for years.
With the upgrade from Xenial to Bionic /etc/security/group.conf is not
evaluated anymore by gnome-terminal as it runs as systemd --user. Xterm,
ssh, su, and tty* however do work as expected. Only the default gnome-
terminal behaves different.
According to https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=851243
and https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=756458 this might
not be a bug, but a feature.
Nevertheless this behavior is very unexpected when upgrading from Xenial
to Bionic and therefore should at least added to the changelog.
