Just a quick update on this. I think I've covered the basics. I've gone into
dbx in a looping process and put breakpoints on setgrent and getgrent.
It never stops at setgrent so I don't think thats the problem . My small test
program seems to work ok so I don't think it's the OS...

Now I'm really confused.

Anyone have any ideas?
