Description

If we run <tt>vm.execute("groups", "amnesia")</tt> it'll only list membership in the major group, i.e. @amnesia.

Ideally, as long as we don't use the remote shell to test actions that a real user could perform, and only use it to check results and prepare stuff, this should not be a practical problem.

However, we have at least one exception (apt-get update / install) that uses the remote shell to emulate user action, and it would be a pain to rewrite using Sikuli, so we'd rather keep this exception.

This was documented in the "how to write tests" documentation, but could still be worth fixing.
