Patch Level: 2
Release Status: release

    According to man page assigment to GROUPS should return error status, this is not a case:

    "GROUPS An  array  variable  containing  the list of groups of which the current user is a member.  Assignments to GROUPS have no effect and return an error
    status.  If GROUPS is unset, it loses its special properties, even if it is subsequently reset."

[Detailed description of the problem, suggestion, or complaint.]
