If there were no group permissions, then the "if" testing them should
never have passed, so I'm stumped. That's basic bitwise comparison with
no special magic of any kind.

Regardless, if I attempt to reproduce this, I'd be guessing at your
environment and might miss a key detail. If you're able to restore it to
the failing state and then execute the filter in test mode with the
attached patch, it should tell you (via syslog) what part of the test is
failing and why. You may need to replace LOG_DEBUG with something like
LOG_NOTICE if you're not logging at debug level already.
