This is one of the most straight forward issues:


I have a group, and many computers are a member of this group.  No prefs are managed for individual computers.  Only in groups.


Prefs-> Login -> Options tab -> Enable Automatic Login *does not work* if this setting is checked, and the section is managed "always".


If I unmanage this, the workstations in this group can then be set to "enable auto logon" from their own machine prefs.


What in the world could be going wrong??

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8), i5 with Thunderbolt
