The way that Zope changes user under the start up sequence
doesn't change the groups.
I'm not sure if this was due to a bug in earlier Python, but there
might be a fix/more info about this in the mail archives or on
or even in the collector (haven't check).

Got the same problems a while back trying to execute Qmail
commands with external methods some while ago.
