My primary group is staff also (GID 20)

I realize it didn't change actually change the GID on the files. But has the
appearance of doing so.

I can't explain why the files have GID > 500, with a non-existent group, but
I've checked two machines and they both have such files.

There is an explanation on the web for one way this can happen: a result of a
migration from Panther, where new users were put in a group with the same name
and number as the user. But that isn't my case; one machine started as Leopard,
the other one is a relatively new Snow Leopard machine.

Based on the variety of files affected with this, I suspect there is more than
one way for it to happen.
