It sounds like your machine may be misconfigured. The test attempts to
lookup the entry in /etc/group corresponding to the process's group.
However, it appears that such an entry doesn't exist. This would imply
that your user doesn't have a valid group, which is quite odd. What does
the `id` command say?
