Well I think I figured out where the problem is. This user was in a  
few different NIS groups. At one point I had some research projects  
split up into NIS groups. This person was in charge of research and  
was part of most of those research groups. When I took him out of  
those other "secondary" groups his jobs started working as expected  
again. I'm not sure why it doesn't like it when someone is in many  
different groups. At the least it should just look at the primary  
group for that user?
