Hi Mark,

Leaving out devel at from the mail chain. I have already tried the method
you suggested and mentioned the problem with that in previous mail. The buddy
moves back to the original group after logging in and logging out. I checked with
some of my colleagues and they are also having this issue.

Please suggest.
