Hi Rowland,

Currently Domain Users doesn't have a gidNumber because it didn't have a
corresponding group in OpenLDAP, which is our master directory.

The primary Unix group gidNumber for each user is replicated from their
OpenLDAP records, but the AD groups have a suffix due to historical name
collisions - a POSIX group called harry would be harry-group in AD, but
with a matching gidNumber.
