#1652 updating top-level group does not reflect ghost members correctly
Closed: Fixed None Opened 7 years ago by jhrozek.

I found this bug while testing my patch for #1612, but I managed to reproduce it with vanilla master, too, so I'm filing it separately.

When we we first retrieve a nested group and then its parent, the parent should also include the nested group's members. It does not.

To reproduce, add two groups, mid and top. Set a low cache timeout. Then run the sequence of commands:
1. getent group top # Will show all top and mid users just fine.
1. getent group mid # Will show all mid users just fine.
1. sleep cache_timeout
1. getent group top # Only users from top are displayed
