We recommend that you review your server ''groupdb'' settings.

An example
 
 
<pre>
 
group1: *group2 +spawn
 
group2: +talk
 
group3: *group2
 
group2: +poll
 
</pre>
 
 
In 2.0 the "*group2" statement in line one would have been ignored because group2 was not yet defined. Also line 4 would have been ignored becaused group2 was used as a reference in line 3.
 
Now in 2.4 these aren't errors anymore, so while in 2.0  the resulting perms are:
 
 
group1: spawn<br />
 
group2: talk<br />
 
group3: talk<br />
 
 
they are in 2.4
 
 
group1: spawn talk poll<br />
 
group2: talk poll<br />
 
group3: talk poll<br />
 
 
If bzfs didn't warn (with -d) about bad group references or skipped lines in 2.0 your groupdb file should work the same way in 2.4. Else you should have a look on it or expect unexpected effects.
