no, this is no bug.

most of the time one does not want the subprocess to run under
additional GIDs, so that is a sane default behaviour.

obviously there should be an option that makes "chpst" add all
supplementary GIDs the UID belongs to, though

would not be too much work to add such a commandline option to it.
