Yeah, I'd considered this myself and was going to implement it but after
mentioning it in FreeBSD-mobile I got response saying it was a bit
overkill (which, it would have been).  Right now I've just got that code
commented out in my login.c.  The comment above the code says something
along the lines of ``PAM may allocate more groups'' - I think that means
that it provides the membership to all of the required groups.  For me
(at the moment) this is not an issue so I have now just compiled with
that code disabled.  It works perfectly but I really want to know what
it's doing exactly, and whether it _should_ be causing a hang.

  Many thanks for your response,
