Seems to be a problem with the timestamp-trick that Eric used, maybe
i used it wrong.

That should be done be my build script, too, i will check this before 
releasing the patched source.

With the two different checks for groups from this test i get two
different lists, one with Administrator, one without.

That would be great.

Doesn't matter, most of them should be in the archives, too?
