I think you should submit a bug report, and a sample stack if you can 
make a reliable one. I've never seen a copied object with an ID 0, and I 
don't think it should happen. Do you remember which rev library had the 
comment in it? I'd like to see it.

You shouldn't have to rename your group, the name you are using is fine. 
Something else is causing the problem.
