Infinite loops again

I don't know if you know about this one, but we still have a problem with
infinite loops in the UNIX groupdb code.

What happens is that getgrpunixpwent calls lookupsmbgrpgid, which eventually
calls gidtoname, which uses getgrpgid. On some OSs getgrpgid resets the group
file pointer.
