The newest versions of Torque include a completely new version of 
init_groups() that was written by APAC to be much more LDAP friendly and, 
coincidentally, fixes the bug in AIX where they decided not to LDAP enable 
the functions that the old init_groups() used (even though the RFC said they 
should be).

Might be worth your while looking into that version, or at least carving out 
the init_groups() function and dropping it into the version you're using 
(which is what I had to do before the patch got merged).

Good luck!
