Uhm... found a interesting cause of this. Apparently there is a
problem in regards to a user being in a certain number of groups.
I currently have way less the NGROUPS max, 64, but I am in more than
the standard max of 16.

It was compiled with syslimits.h containing 64 for NGROUPS_MAX.

Note: This is actually a resend. I going ahead an resending under the
proper account. Originally sent under another and decided to resend
instead of waiting for the other message to be approved.
