Ronald, on a normal unix system if you add a user to a group, any existing process/terminal session that runs 'id -G' will return the *old* group list.  Only a new process/terminal session will see the new group.

On OSX, 'id -G' returns the new group when run in an existing process/terminal session, according to what you wrote.

You can't just remove the 'id -G' from that test, because the test is using 'id -G' to get an independent verification of the list of group numbers as a check against what getgroups returns.  On a normal unix system, these two would match.  On OSX, they don't.

At the moment I don't see any alternative to skipping the test on OSX with a message that 'id -G' and 'getgroups' do not return the same group list on OSX.
