One of the less intuitive things about UserAuth is that granting a 
privilege to any user will effectively deny that privilege to all other 
users.  So when you gave edit_group privs to one user, that overrode the 
global edit privs on the other user.  So the other user now needs to 
either be edit_group-GroupName as well, or edit_all.  Hope this helps.
