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.
