Package: konsole
Version: 4:3.3.2-1
Severity: normal

- command "groups" in konsole: doesn't show the extra group for the
- log in into other terminal (Ctrl+Alt+F2): shows the extra group

- restart kde (not the wanted fix though...).

That's the way Linux and most Unix work. You don't get into the new
