You are actually lucky it didn't segfault.  There are a number of logic
bugs, the fixes for which I think didn't make 3.0.6.  Try current SVN,
but I suspect we might need some extra code to correctly pick up the
universal groups.  (We know how to do it, so it's a simple matter of
programming - bug #1562.)
