I found strange result for 'id' use.
If run id with lowercase login we getting this

address@hidden Admins]$ id -a shev_ay
uid=1062(shev_ay) gid=513(DomainUsers)

if first letter in uppercase, we get
address@hidden Admins]$ id -a Shev_ay
uid=1062(shev_ay) gid=513(DomainUsers) groups=513(DomainUsers)

Given the magic group 513 as DomainUsers, I can't help but wonder if this is on Windows, perhaps via the cygwin port. If so, your question is better asked to the place that ported id to your platform - cygwin may very well have a quirk in exposing window's case-insensitivity when it queries the user database.
