Make sure the group's boundingrect is set to empty. Then open the group 
for editing (you don't have to change anything, but you might want to 
jiggle an object or two) and then stop editing it. It sounds like the 
group's boundaries may be off, and doing this might force a reset of the 
edges. I seem to remember having this same problem a few years ago and 
that's how I fixed it.
