Mine's Red Hat 7.2+++, Openldap 2.1.4, Berkeley 4.0.14 and PADL
pam_ldap-148 and nss_ldap-197.

Same here, but I can live without it. 'id username' should return the
group number for you.

You probably have ACL problems, mine works o.k.

Same here.

Look to your ACLs, as far as 'ls -l' returning group names is concerned.
If I try hard enough with my ACL attributes, I can make it so that
neither UID/user name  nor GID/grout name works properly any more.
'getent group' has never worked for me, but I don't miss it; everything
else works.
