so is the dummy spit by apache itself, or a syscall made by apache ? 

u can use ktrace on apache when starting/dying and see what is causing the 
actual problem.

IF the issue really is central to /etc/groups , would moving to a bigger user 
management system (LDAP, NIS ? ) be possible? ( possibly implies changes to 
virtualmin too..)
