I got that.  I was asking if the same id is uid *and* pgid.  Sorry
if that wasn't clear.

Here are the first few lines of my "id" output (the entire output is huge, as we make excessive use of AD groups here):

The problem here is the abbreviation in both cases.  What I was looking
for is if your user uid/SID shows up in the token group list as well.
I don't need the full list, but can you please check?
