The group must have already existed or you wouldn't have gotten the
error.  Since you think you created it, it's likely that you and the
system have different ideas about where the group definition really is
(perhaps the system is using NIS rather than files?).  If you never want
to restrict the use of the admin command, you can completely disable it
by undefining CVS_ADMIN_GROUP in src/options.h.
