Confirmed. If exists() is the first thing called on a workgroup the type
== TYPE_WORKGROUP will not be type because type will not be set due to
attribute caching. In exists() the type conditional should probably be
getType() == TYPE_WORKGROUP. In 0.7 I have if( true || type ==. I probably
ran into the problem in the middle of some busy hacking and fudged it to
always do the workgroupOrServer lookup.

I have some other fixes that need to go in. I'll roll a 0.8.1 release real
