Patrick,

When you say no user groups were created, how were you checking?  They wouldn't 
show up under the "Manage Groups" section of the site because they are not 
flagged 
as "custom" groups in the database.

You should see the groups anywhere you would select a user group.  However, 
they 
will not be created until someone from the desired affiliation has logged in 
after 
the user.lastupdated field for that user is 24 hours old (manually set it to an 
older date to force it).  The other thing you might hit is if you have a case 
statement for that affiliation already in place in the switch statement, in 
which 
case the default one would not be called.  You could move the extra line of 
code 
outside of the switch statement to make it get called for everyone, even if you 
have an existing case statement for that affiliation (that's probably where I 
should have told you to put it in the first place).
