Thanks, I tested it, and it looks good. The problem is gone.

I think this is a bug and I added a fix in the 2.1 branch in SVN. Can you
see if the fix looks good to you?

Any insights into this? Is there a possibility this could be fixed

group. I did the following as a test:

1. Create 2 groups, ALL_INCLUDES and ALL_EXCLUDES.
2. Add a member to ALL_EXCLUDES, and verify the remove options appear.
3. Create an ALL group as ALL_INCLUDES complement ALL_EXCLUDES.
4. Go back to ALL_EXCLUDES and the remove options are missing.
5. Delete the ALL group, and the remove options are back.

can also delete a member by clicking on "is a direct member" and removing
the "member" privilege, but our admins expect the remove options to be
