Thanks a lot! These things I didn't know about.

However, even launching from the commandline doesn't give me the
correct **groups**. Does anyone have a fix for that?

Can you expand?  I don't quite understand what you mean here.

By 'groups' I mean the list of groups returned by the /usr/bin/groups command. The list returned when running this from a sub-emacs shell didn't match that returned on the Terminal commandline.

I now realise you're not meant to use /usr/bin/open to launch emacs from the commandline! Doing it the prescribed way--running .../emacs/mac/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/Emacs--I DO NOW SEE THE CORRECT GROUPS.
