[sudo-users] Problem with custom %group in /etc/sudoers on Linux (RHEL) 64bit

I just installed a new RHEL 5.5 x86_64 system and have encountered a 
problem with using a %group other than "wheel".

Verision of SUDO installed:


OS info:

Linux test-flash3.dce.harvard.edu 2.6.18-238.12.1.el5 #1 SMP Sat May 7 
20:18:50 EDT 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Basically, when I add my own custom group, verify that the /etc/group is 
properly configured, it denies me.  It only works for group "wheel".

I've seen problems with other programs on 64 bit platforms, where 32 bit 
otherwise works fine.

Have I found a bug or?
