Hmmm...only mapped groups show up in the object picker.
What do you propose doing here?  Just failing and returning
an error?  Or reporting the unix group as a domain group?
I don't think I would like the latter.

I think that just failing the call and cleaning up
the pieces during testing is probably ok.  If nothing
breaks, then we are lucky.
