As I mentioned at the top of the thread, I changed the local group
on the Fedora 16 installation to 989 (from 990) to match the Fedora 17

installation. (But it occurs to me that if I were to try to join a new
group with GID 990 on the Fedora 16 installation, I might see things go
squirrelly there, too.)
Should I have removed the local mock group on both installations?
Yes, if you're maintaining it in LDAP, you should remove it locally.
Otherwise, the client system will never ask LDAP for it. (It always
checks the local files first, and ignores LDAP if it's found locally).
